Thamerus family

Journal by Spangehl

The group I am seeking lived in Münsterappel, in Bavaria, Germany, in the 1813-1870 period. Maria Catherine Thamerus came to the US and settled in New York City, but (family legend says) she had brothers who settled in Kentucky and Pennsylvania. Her father was Michael Thamerus and her mother Elizabeth Fleischer; siblings were Jacobina, Johann Friedrich, Charlotta, Elisabetha, and Michael. One story an aunt told me claims that her father was a wine exporter, and she and her brothers sailed to the US on a ship that ran aground on the coast of Africa during a storm encountered en route.

I believe that my great great grandfather is the Michael Thamerus brother of Maria Catherine Thamerus. If the records I searched correctly, he had 2 daughters, Luise and Elise. Luise lived in Mackenbach, Pfalz
