  • Notes 
    • BIOGRAPHY:
      Version #1
      Henry & Wilhelmenia left Steinhagen Bielfeldt in North-Eastern part of the province of Westphalia in the state of Prussia German empire, in the year of 1847. They decided to try to improve their fortunes by emigrating to America. Prussia at that time had just gone through the disastrous period of the Napoleonic Wars, and had at last driven the French army out of Germany, and conditions in north-eastern Westphalia, which was a rough and mountainous section of the province, were anything but promising with the prospect of more wars to come. These conditions probably were the cause of the desperate desire for them to try their luck in a new country. Having only enough money for ocean passage for two to the United States, it was necessary to leave the four children behind with friends in Germany until such time as they could become settled in America, secure work and save enough money to pay for their passage. The decision to leave the four small children behind was a heart breaking one to make, but the desire to leave Europe was a pressing one, and the sacrifice had to be made. Upon reaching America they made their way to St. Louis, Missouri where he found work in a sugar refinery. It took four long years of hard work and frugal living to enable the couple to save enough money to send back to Germany to pay for the children's passage across the ocean, and during that four years another daughter had been born to them in St. Louis, Missouri. But at long last the money was saved and sent to Germany and in 1851 after a stormy passage of eighty-one days on an old sailing ship, the four children were happily reunited with their parents. The four children's ages at this time ranged from eleven down to four years. It is hard to appreciate the responsibility borne by Louisa, an eleven year old girl in caring for the three younger children on this long rough voyage, with another family on this sail ship.

The decision to leave the four small children behind was a heart breaking one to make, but the desire to leave Europe was a pressing one and the sacrifice had to be made and upon reaching America they made their may to St. Louis.
      Hardly had the family been reunited in this country when an epidemic of the dreaded Asiatic Cholera broke out in St. Louis, Missouri. The father, the young son who had been born in Germany, and the little daughter who had been born in St. Louis, all contracted the terrible disease and in a few days all three were dead.
      This tragic event left Wilhelmenia a widow with three young daughters, Louisa, Mary, and Johanna Maria Caroline to care for. Far from her native land and relatives, and with no financial resources. But the family was some how able to stick together and weather the storm of disasters which had overtaken them.

      James and Jill,

      I found the following site today, and I think it may be the ship on which the Meisenschmidt children were brought to America. Check it out and let me know what you think:
      http://www.immigrantships.net/v4/1800v4/louisiana18521021.html
      The first three names and ages fit, but the fourth is one I've never heard of before.

      I also found this reference that I wholeheartedly believe is the oldest child's confirmation record.

      Hope you both are well. I'm trying to dedicate the next month (we just sent the students home) to getting caught up on some family history. Please be sure to let me know if you've found anything interesting lately.
