I recently learned that the brother of one of my ancestors emigrated from Germany to the US and settled in New London.
The persons of interests are
- Hugo G. (Gustav) Meissner (1843-1914)
- Catharine A. Fisher (1843-1896), his wife
- Maria E. Fisher (* around 1868), her (most likely illegitimate) daughter
- William Fisher (1825-1869), whose connection to Catharine is unknown, but who nonetheless shares a grave plot with the former two persons.
All the information I have is collected here:https://www.reddit.com/r/Genealogy/comments/aztb1f/hugo_mei%...
I would like to find out more about them all, but most importantly, whether he had any children. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
Also, for those who have any experience ordering CT state or New London County death records: Which ones are "better"? Is there any difference in pricing? I would like to have a death record that lists the amount of children.
