Jeremiah Hayes #121739682
I just show your information on Jeremiah Hayes and I believe you have incorrect information--or I am in dire need of where you got your information. :-)
Jeremiah is my 3 greats grandfather so I have been searching for him for a long time. First, I do not believe that he was born in Ireland, all of his children say that he was born in Virginia--I believe Katherine Houseman would have married him there. But even more importantly, I am wondering where you got his death date as 18 Dec 1881. While that is certainly possible, that puts him at 99 years of age, and that is not likely. He is not living with his wife in the 1850 or 1860 censuses. That sort of implies to me that he is deceased, but if I am wrong I would love to have the correct information.

Thank you in advance for any information. Waynne James

John Mathern # 88656927
I have found some additional information on another set of my great-great-grandparents. An interesting aspect of this is that four of the Mathern children (2 daughters and 2 sons) married four of the Brecht siblings.

Apparently the "custom" of siblings marrying siblings carried into future generations as my Mother had two sisters and two brothers married siblings from the same family. These four Henle siblings married four Kriegel siblings. The Henle siblings were children of Antonetta Rachel "Gettis" Henle, a daughter of Marcella "Brecht" Gettis, a daughter of Adam and Mary Eva "Mathern" Brecht. Additionally one of the Henle daughters married a first cousin to the Kreigel siblings and another Henle daughter and son married distant cousins to the same family. So much for the life on the farm in Iowa over the generations. :)

Below I list the entries from the Ship manifest from the early part of 1843. It lists the Mathern family coming from Alsace, France on a ship called the "Sully". The names vary somewhat and it would appear that my great-grandmother is listed as Magdalena (although she was known in America as Mary Eva). I also included the listing from the 1850 US Census, which lists a total of eleven children, unfortunately I have been unable to find the other six not currently listed on "Find-A-Grave" but my search continues...

Brecht family
I hope you received the information I sent dealing with the Ship Manifest when the Franz and Philippina Brecht family arrived in New York in 1852 and that is can be added to their memorial. Please feel free to contact me!

Immigration Report from District of New York Port of New York
Arrived in New York on September 29, 1852
Vessel name - Cotton Planter
Departure Port - Rotterdam

Manifest of Passengers includes:

Name Gender Age Estimated Birth Year Birthplace

Franz Stephan Brecht Male 48 1804 Baden
Philippina Brecht Female 42 1810 Baden
Franziska Brecht Female 22 1830 Baden
Salome Brecht Female 20 1832 Baden
Lorenz Brecht Male 19 1833 Baden
Adam Brecht Male 17 1835 Baden
Augusta Brecht Female 11 1841 Baden
Elisabetha Brecht Female 10 1842 Baden
Katharina Brecht Female 9 1843 Baden
Heinrich Brecht Male 6 1846 Baden
Jozeph Brecht Male 5 1847 Baden
Maria Brecht Female 3 1849 Baden
Phillippina Brecht Female 0 1852 Baden

Franz and Philippina were my great-great grandparents. Their second eldest son was my Great-Grandfather, Adam Brecht. Franz' occupation was listed as "weaver" but in subsequent census report his occupation was listed as "Farmer". Katharina and Henry ("Heinrich" are buried with the same marker and likely assumed to be husband and wife but based on this Immigration Record they were actually brother and sister. At this time I have been unable to find additional information dealing with daughters Elisabetha, Maria, and Phillippina. Based on this manifest the entire family left Germany and traveled to Rotterdam where they boarded the Cotton Planter, arriving in New York on September 29, 1852.

Christopher Stratton Find A Grave Memorial# 142783018
I'm descendant of this family as well, and I have found the surname "Stallham" or "Stalham" is used interchangeably with "Stratton" on much of my research. Have you found this also to be the case?
