Jakoby & Buschauer
Families of Mercydorf
Well this is the extent of the foreign-born relatives
that I know of. All of this is part of my Dad's
mother's lineage (my 89 year old grandma, the only
grandparent who is still living and doing well!).
I have talked to her a lot about this and she was the
one who gave me all of the names and info, but she
doesn't remember too much else about it. Well it's
a start! The internet has been wonderful, I
wouldn't have known so much good info without all of the
web resources. There is still so much I plan to
do, even just all of the leads on George's ship manifest
JAKOBY, Joseph (Michael's brother so around same age)
JAKOBY, Peter (Father - died 1918)
JAKOBY, Mary (Mother)
BUSCHAUER, Katie 4/21/1893 - Social Security Application shows
she wrote she was born in Temesuar, Hungary
BUSCHAUER - Joseph, Michael, Bertha (Katie's siblings)
BUSCHAUER, George (Father - died in 1917) - I found him on
Dave's ship list site! It stated he came over in 1906 from
Mercydorf on the ship Amerika at age 54 - that he came with son
Josef (11 yrs old) to join son Michael Buschauer. This is
the very first time I saw the name "Mercydorf" and I
got really excited! A lot of good info here! MAYER, Marie
I am also
curious to find out the German towns my ancestors came from.
This fact has also been passed down - my grandmother's and
grandfather's great-great-grandparents both migrated to Hungary in the 1830s from the Black Forest area of Germany.
So many leads, so little time!
