Looking for info on Gunther family from Buttstedt, and Heiligenstadt Germany.
I have been trying to find information on my mothers family for ten years or more and keep coming up with nothing. This is what I have.
My grandfather Philipp Dorn born 31 Jul 1887 in Thuringia, Heiligenstadt, Germany. Died in Staten Island, New York on 20 Oct 1959.
His parents are August Dorn and Appolonia Capelli . I have no other information on my great grandparents.
Philipp Dorn married Elisabeth Amelia Gunther in Germany DOB. 03 Mar 1891. DOD 02 Jul 1935 in Statin Island NY. Elizabeth's parents are Bartholomaus or Berthol Josef Gunther who was from Buttstedt, Germany.
Her mothers name was Emilie Naujoks or Augusta Emilie Naujocks who was from Memel, Germany. (Prussia). Gunther and Naujoks were married in Braunschweig Germany.
Philipp and Elizabeth had two daughters. Erna Elizabeth DOB 22 Apr 1914 in Heiligenstadt, Germany DOD 15 Feb 1998, in Kissimmee FL
Helen Ana Dorn, DOB 1 Mar 1920 in Heiligenstadt, could have been Herbern, Germany. DOD 24 Sept 1987 in Kissimmee, Fl, USA.
