  5.   Family notes per User:White Creek.

    In the German language, Charles is KARL.

    After migrating to Indianapolis, Charles was a saloon keeper, a retail grocer, and a dealer in dry goods. In 1874 his business address was 318 East Washington Street, in downtown Indianapolis. has a copy of his 1860 Passport Application, where he applied for permission to visit Schaumburg-Lippe. It is not clear if he was married then, nor what his purpose was in returning to Schaumburg-Lippe.

    Charles' brother, Anthony, migrated almost exactly 10 years later, and joined him in his grocery business as a clerk, before going off on his own, about 11 years later. [see Anthony's WeRelate page]

    Anthony and his family are buried in this same cemetery, and adjacent to a plot of FUEHRINGS! FUEHRING is Anthony's wife's, mother's surname, which is a very rare surname. It indicates that perhaps there is a connection to the Fuehrings buried in Concordia, and the mother of the Lohmeier sisters?
