Could the name be Bertram? Lots of them in the Carrolltown area, but I have no recollection of Bertrang. I have a copy of Fr. Shank's Death Records from St. Benedict' Church, and I will look for you.

Ledoux, Vol III, St Benedict's Catholic Church, page 257, # 5650 BERTRAM, MATHAEUS D. 9-21-1855

Same, page 219, # 4951 Bertram, Martina (Matthiae/Christinae Donner) B. 11 03 bap 11-20-1853, gp: Joannes & Martina Bertram

Ask your question again, using the name Bertram. I am sure you will get an answer, if you didn't already.
I have a Peter Bertram married to a widow who was my ancestor. He was the brother of John Bertram above.
As far as I know, these people were all from Hohlenzollern Sigmarigen, in southern Germany, now part of Baden-Wurttenburg. In 1848, it became part of Prussia, so you might see that as a place of origin on the Census.
They either lived in Carroll Township, or in Allegheny Township, as far as I know.
Let me know if you get any responses, as I had not previously heard of Matthew.

Hi folks:

Quite a while back I had a more recent copy of a record stating the death/burial
of my ancestor at St. Benedict's cemetery in Carrolltown. In particular, I am
trying to find out any and all information about him. I have tried finding his
birthplace in Germany by going to his bride's town of birth in Germany...she
married in America. It seems this is about the only place I could find
information, if any, about him.

He is:

Matthias "Matthew" Bertrang/Bedrang
died Sept. 21, 1855 in Carrolltown, PA. Believed to be buried at St. Benedict's
cemetery. He was married to Christina (Danner) Bertrang.
A daughter, Mattina Bertrang, was believed to have been baptised here as well in
1853.

If anybody has any tips, suggestions or information available it would be
greatly appreciated.


Regards,

Justin
Lacon, IL
