Subject: [MO-AR-WRV] Seeking info on Maria Elizabeth (Stoecklin) and August Scharf...-Sharon
Date: Mon, 24 Feb 2003 18:04:26 EST
In a message dated 2/22/03 4:50:09 AM Central Standard Time,
<< Maria was born in Aesch, Switzerland in 1830 migrated with family to
Hermann, Gasconade County, Missouri about 1852, married and can't find since.
In her father's will of 1881, she is mentioned as deceased with children,
however they are unnamed and no mention of where they lived. Anyone have any
information? Would be greatly appreciated.
I would like to suggest that you check the
web page for Gasconade Co., Missouri at rootsweb.com
and more importantly,
Post your above message at the family board for Scharf at genforum.com (I've
had very good results from posting minimal info to these boards that stay on
I did not find anything posted there currently on Hermann, Gasconade Co.,
Missouri but there were some August Scharf listed-----you will want to read
through the 33 items that come up when you search for August Scharf. You
might recognize things that I wouldn't have known to look for.
Great success in your search!
Also, you may want to search the archives at rootsweb.com
in both colony lists for Germaine Colony I and II. Your Stoecklin and Scharf
might have come through one of those early colonies. Again, Good luck in your
