Hi All,
The names we are researching are
Panitzki/e from Neufahrwasser, Danzig
Eggert not sure where born but died in Neufahrwasser, Danzig
Plehn (Bläm) Mulde bei Danzig
Kärsch again not sure where born but died in Neufahrwasser, Danzig

These are lines we have some infomation on but it's never enough.
We are finding tracing data in Germany more difficult than others and have put it on the one day list, but is never forgotten.

I am researching the Pabst surname from Germany. My gg grandfather was Charles Alexander Pabst, born 1842 in Saxony, Germany. His death certificate lists his father as Fredrich Pabst. A census lists his parents as both being born in Saxony, Germany. I know he came to the U.S. in 1862 (per census records), but have not been able to locate him on any passenger lists yet. I believe he came to the U.S. through New York as I have found military records showing a Charles A. Pabst enlisted in Buffalo about 1865. Charles then moved to Texas where he met and married Emily Davis in Burnet County, TX in the 1890s. She is presumed to have died and he then married Margaret Tow sometime later and had children, one of them being my ggf William Pabst. Charles never spoke of being in the service and some in the family believe it is because he fought for the Union then came down to live in Texas (the South). Charles is my brickwall as I do not know what his parents names are, where and which port he immigrated through to the U.S. and I'd also like to know more info about his parents and other Pabst family in Germany.

Thanks for your suggestion, Casidy.
No, I haven't. Not that sure where he was born. Some material suggests Evansville, which is in Vanderburgh Co.; some suggests Randolph Co. Not near each other. That was my next step: to try to resolve where in Indiana. Church records are great suggestion if I can tie him down better, or if they just suggest family movement after his birth.

Joan,
Have you tried looking to see if there are any church records you might be able to search?
