Samuel Steuer’s great-granddaughter, Eva Wachsner Nothmann, Descendants Uncovered

I discovered several years ago that Samuel had at least three children: Emanuel, Friederike and Bernhard. Emanuel Steuer married Friederike Boehm and they had five children – although Louis died at age 1 year 7½ months old and Emilie died when she was a year and 5 months old, Friederike Steuer married Moses Wachsner (his second wife; his first wife was Rosalie (Rosalia )  Steuer) and they had nine children – although Rosalie died when she was not yet month old and Selma died at the age a mere 11 days  and Bernhard Steuer married Jettel "Henriette" Eisner and they had six children – although Friederike died at age 4 years, 7 months old; Rosalie died when she was  just 3 months old and Emilie died when she was 4 months old.

I already had found out that Eva Wachsner, daughter of Isaac Wachsner, and Herschel Nothmann had three children: Isaac (21 Dec 1861, Bierun, Upper Silesia), Selma (3 Apr 1863, Bierun, Upper Silesia) and Mathilde (17 Aug 1865, Prussia). Just before Rosh HaShanah I uncovered Eva’s grandchildren and descendants. There now are Eastern Prussian Provinces, Germany [Poland], Selected Civil Vitals, 1874-1945 online, which were not available a few years ago.

Mathilde Nothmann married Julius Bielschowsky, son of Adolf Bielschowsky & Rikel Friederike Schiller. They had six children: Frieda, born 29 Aug 1888, Lodz, Lodzkie, Poland, married Bruno Pincus Apt on  23 Apr 1914 and died  1944, Auschwitz; Adolf, born 26 May 1891, Lodz, Lodzkie, Poland and died 10 May 1944, Warschau/Warsaw; Selma, born 08 Oct 1893, Lodz, Lodzkie, Poland, married Jacob Henry Bernstein, son of Leon Bernstein and Taube and died 1942, Shoah; Otto Stephen, born 17 Sep 1895, Lodz, Lodzkie, Poland and died 1942, Shoah; Olga, born 30 Apr 1898, Lodz, Lodzkie, Poland and died ca 1943, Shoah and Georg, born 04 Jan 1903, Lodz, Lodzkie, Poland & died 1942, Shoah.

Frieda Bielschowsky and Bruno Pincus Apt, son of Adolf Apt (b. 1848) and Marie Nothman (b. 1850, daughter of Herschel Nothmann and Hanna Johanna Baender/Bender), (he died 19 Dec 1943 at Theresienstadt Camp) had three children: Maria Eva Apr (8 Sep 1916-05 Jul 1926), Tzvi Apt and another son.

Adolf Bielschowsky also married, his wife was a survivor.

Selma Bielschowsky and Jacob Henry Bernstein (1886-1942) had two children: Leo Bernstein, born 10 Jun 1923, Lodz, Lodzkie, Poland and died in 1942 and Toni Bernstein, born 17 Jan 1929, Lodz, Lodzkie, Poland and died in 1942.

I’m sure if I keep digging, I’ll find more family members.

    Good job, but there is more to be found! I believe that you have to decide to enter and MyHeritage, no cost.
    In Geni too is a lot to be found!
