KOSEK, LAUFENBERGER posted by Judy Bohanan on Sunday, June 17, 2001

Need information on Jennie Kosek, immigrated from Prague in 1890. In 1910 census she was listed with 2 sons, Frank W. and Albert. In 1920 census she was listed with Fred Laufenberger. Jennie was the second Mrs. Laufenberger, and may have had another husband between Kosek and Laufenberger. She was living in Faribault in both census 1910 and 1920. Can anyone out there help me?

BORESCH, LONIEN, METZEN, SCHWEISTHAL posted by Kathy Metzen on Sunday, July 8, 2001

in the 1880s, the following arrived in Faribault from the Eifel area of Germany. Susannah Schweisthal (from Erdorf) & her husband Johan Lonien (from Wilsecker) (some records list him as Johan, some as Johan Peter). Also Michael Schweisthal, his son Valentin, & grandson, Michael (from Erdorf). The elder Michael Schweisthal died in 1899. In 1905, Susannah's older sister Anna Maria (Maria) came (from Wilsecker)with her husband, Michael Metzen, & children: Anna Maria (Emma), Johan Heinrich, Johan, & Nicholas. The Schweisthals were also related to members of the Boresch family, who had arrived much earlier. Michael Metzen was employed at Shattuck. Emma married Nicholas Mertes(from Luxembourg). I do not & have never lived in Minnesota. Several attempts to contact other descendants have failed. If you are descended from these people, I would like to compare notes. I may be able to give you some information.
