Hi, I'm trying to find John Christian Kaiser's wife. It appears he went by the name of Christian or Chris rather than John. He emigrated from Germany in 1869. He was born in Germany on June 12, 1851 and died in Memphis TN on Feb 1, 1933.
His name appears in the 1871 Edwards Memphis City Directory as a harnessmaker. The 1880 Census shows him living with his mother, Christiana & brother Paul. The 1900 census lists him as a widower.
If I have the facts straight he had 4 children:
Anna born abt 1880. I do not find any record that she married.
Charlotte (Lottie) born Feb 12, 1886 died Dec 8, 1957. She was married to Edmund Pontius Sr.
Julius Herman Kaiser born Aug 22 1888 or 1889. Died in Florida.
William Christian Kaiser born Sept 21, 1895.
I've already checked the Shelby County register of deeds website and I've looked at John Christian's obit. No mention of his late wife. I've looked at the death certifictes that I can find also.
I haven't been able to find any record on who their mother was or where she was buried. If anyone has any info or knows where I can search please let me know. Thank you!
