Ellenberger, Abraham and Muller, Elizabeth (son Valentine born New York)

Ellenberger, Abraham and Muller, Elizabeth (son Valentine born New York)

Posted: 1472479990000
Classification: Query
I have located a POSSIBLE immigration record for Abraham Elenberger in 1834 which shows his place of origin as Bavaria. Abraham and Elizabeth's first known son, Valentine, was born in NY. Subsequent children were born in Ohio, and they then moved to French, Adams, Indiana, USA where their last known son, Abraham, was born in 1849. I have been unable to locate any date of death or place of death for either Abraham or Elizabeth. While there are about 30 trees on this family on Ancestry.com, all list just other Ancestry trees as "sources" which is zero proof. I would love to communicate with any descendents of Valentine to see if they have any info on the New York birth. The family could have moved from Bavaria to France or Switzerland before he immigrated. While French people speak French, Swiss people speak German, French, and even Italian in the South of Switzerland. Thanks if you can help....

The 1850 census for French, Adams, Indiana shows Valentine as being born in New York. The name is recorded as Ellaherger. I believe that the parents correctly recorded the place of birth of their son and that the death record is incorrect.
