Descendants of August Westermann

Generation No. 1

1. 1. AUGUST1 WESTERMANN was born Abt. 1829 in Minterhausen, Hepen, Germany, and died June 27, 1878 in Louisville, Kentucky. He married MARGARET HEINRITZ.

Notes for AUGUST WESTERMANN:

In a letter dated in 1967, it states August Westerman was born in Hess Demostadt

1860 Jefferson County Census:

August-35 years old Gardener from Hesse, Margaret-26 years old from Baiern, Nich-4 years old, and Henry-2 years old. Living with them is a John Wirt who was 30 years old and from Wurtemburg. Note that he was living in Jefferson County close by John Westermann who was also a Gardener. This John Westermann is the same one I believe to be my Gabriel Westermann's brother.

1870 Jefferson County Census:

August-41 years old Farmer from Hesse Darmstadt, Margaret-31 years old from Bavaria, Nicholas-14 years old, Henry-12 years old, James-9 years old, Conrad-7 years old, Gustav-3 years old, and Mary-3 months old. Living in Two Mile House Precinct, Newburg Post Office, House #32? (last number blurred).

This is found on page #6 of the census for that precinct listed above.

Note: James that is listed above is later called Louis and is buried with the name Lewis in Penn Run Cemetery.

Note concerning the 1860 and 1870 census:

The variances between the same two families is so much I wonder if the census taker did not just guess how old these people were. However, the children's ages are consistent.
