Showing the evolution of a GERMANS-WI maiden name "Endress" ... an example of why some of us use church records religiously to increase accuracy in our research AND more family detail. - 1822: Endress; Margarethe Endress's christening in Eschenau, Bavaria church records - 1851: Endress; christening record for son Conrad, named Conrad Endress because there was no record of a marriage; father Johann Härtl; mother Margarethe Endress is named along with her parent's names and their house No. 63 (a really helpful detail in German records). Baptism sponsor was Conrad Conrad (see 1857) - 1857: Anderes; Mr. & Mrs. Härtl are sponsors for the Jun 14 baptism of John Conrad, son of fellow Eschenau emigrants Conrad & Elis. (Dexheimer) Conrad, settlers in New Berlin, Waukesha Co., WI - 1860: Enderes; baptism of 3 Haertel sibs (sponsored by an adult Franz Haertel) - 1861: Anderes; baptism of Maria Louise Haertel (sponsored by an adult Maria Louise Haertel). Her cousin Anna Amelia Rauh's baptism (later Mrs. Andrew Rebholz) was on the same day. That cousin relationship was the catalyst for this research. - 1863: Enderes; 19 Oct 1863 baptism of son "Ador Johann" Haertel (John Sperber was sponsor) - 1894: Andrea; per son Conrad's biography in "Portrait and Biographical Record of Waukesha County, Wisconsin". Now known as Conrad A. Haertel, he would've been more accurate using Conrad E. Haertel since he was born an Endress. - 2000s: Andrea; 2 online trees are matched to German "Andrea" records. The records look pretty good, except that they're not for Margarethe (Endress) Haertel.
