Ok ... can anyone take this further. Thanks


Gustave Melsing was a trained accountant, he also learned the confectioners trade in Germany. They migrated in approx. 1858.

After Gustave Melsing and Elizabeth Schwerin Melsing arrived in America, they came directly to Gold Hill, Nevada where he worked as an accountant in the silver mines. When the ore ran out and the silver mines closed down, they came with their five children to San Francisco, where he opened a confectionery shop at 3rd & Minna Sts. It became famous for Melsing's rye bread.

Here's what ancestry.com spat back, I don't know if the Naturalization is the right one, given the name but it was close enough to mention it:

I'm looking for a Thomas J. Jackson. He was born about 1860 in Kentucky. The 1880 Census shows him living as the step-son of John Schick. Thomas' mother's name was Lue. They lived in Wayne county, Missouri.

Artie Jackson was my great-great-grandmother. She was born about 1860 in Missouri. Her daughter Kate was born in 1885 and her son Clarence was born Aug 1894. Artie and her husband were probably married between 1880 and 1885, and Artie's husband probably died between Dec 1893-1900 (before the 1900 census was taken), because the 1900 census shows Artie as a widow. Thomas Jackson was in Wayne county in 1880, but not in 1900, and he seems to have been born around the correct time. So, he could be Artie's husband. What I need to find out is if Thomas was married and/or died in Wayne county, Missouri between 1880-1900. There may not be any info. I'm grasping at straws. I'm not quite as concerned about who Thomas' parents were. My main concern at this point is figuring out if Thomas could be the husband of Artie Jackson and father of Kate and Clarence.

Thanks.

Broughton is her maiden name. She married a man named Schmidt in California. She was possibly Native American.

Default World Lookup/ Brick Walls

I do not have access to Ancestry World, so if anyone can help me with my "brick walls," it would sincerely be appreciated.

My great grandfather (paternal) Clemente Basile, born 1862 in Agira, Sicily, arrived in this country 10-15-1887 on the Brittanic. He lived in Newark, NJ and died in 1937.
His wife, Filippina Ingallina, born 1864 in Agira, Sicily, arrived in this country 1886. She lived in Newark, NJ and died on 9-25-1936.

I am seeking information in regards to their parents, grand parents, etc. including siblings.

My great great grandfather (maternal) John Adam Satterer, born 3-23-1843 in Hasselbach, Baden, Germany. He arrived in the US on the SS Bremen on 7-2-1866. He is listed in census from Newark NJ, although I have no information regarding his death.

My great great grandmother, Anna Elizabeth Hilgenberg, born 1-15-1849, Hesse' Cassel, Germany. I have no information on her regarding her death either.

I am also seeking information in regards to their parents, grand parents, etc. including siblings.

Any help with my "brick walls?"

There's a few US censuses for them but no info on their parents, grandparents, siblings, etc. I found the passenger list but I assume you already have that. Similar results with the others.

Unfortunately, I've found Ancestry to be pretty weak and lacking when it comes to their world records. They have no Italian censuses and only have BMDs from a handful of Italy cities or towns, Agira is not one of them. The German records are probably similar.

Thank you for taking the time to check.

They're really good when it comes to Germany, England, Scotland, and Switzerland. I have traced my roots back to the 1400s in Germany, and back to 1200 in England.

Oh sorry, I thought I'd replied to that before. I didn't find anything, sorry.
