Tobias Oehlert. I have always wondered if he is a brother to Johannah Friederick August Oehlert, born about 1820, my Great Great Grandfather. Not sure of the order of John's names. The ships record has Fr. (Friederick), some census have August, and the gravestone says Johannah in IA.
My reasons. When John brought his family to the US they came in through New Orleans and the destination was specific to St. Louis. His family lived in the same township as Tobias in Missouri for the first few years. In naming children there is an awful lot of duplication. John had two sons that were ministers and if I remember there were some in Tobias' family also. John also came from Saxony Province.
Does anyone know if John Gottfried Oehlert born in 1798 had more children than the four listed on Rootsweb. I would think at least they are related in some way. Maybe at the very least cousins.
