I am a descendant of Frederick Johann Eisenberg (1847-1928) of Ellington Twp. He was born in Waldeck. I am trying to connect the Eisenbergs & Bangerts, also of Waldeck - they may be cousins or neighbors in Germany.
Fred Eisenberg & John Bangert were in the same household in the 1870 Ellington Twp census. John was born 1796 Prussia & his wife Christina born 1800 Prussia. I believe that it was their daughter Mary born 1829 who married about 1850, Wilhelm Eisenberg (1894-1897). Wilhelm was an uncle of Fred.
Laura Bangert married John F. Disselhorst 11/10/09 in Adams Co.
Catherine (Katie) Bangert, daughter of Henry & Catherine (Kate) Unknown, married Frederick Spilker 7/12/1893 Adams Co. They were at 807 Madison in 1900. Henry Bangert was born 1833 Waldeck. I remember the Spilker name being mentioned when I was young (I'm 68). It may have been because they were near neighbors of my Uncle Herman & Mamie Griep who lived in the 800 block on Madison.
There is a Charles (Carl) Bangert born 1834 Waldeck who was also in Adams Co in 1870. I believe he was a brother to Henry.
