I am researching the families of Elias and Wilhelmina Eckert Fitterer, who immigrated to Moosic Pennsylvania prior to 1870 from Baden Germany.
In the 1870 census their names where listed as Lewis and Philipine Fetterer. However, their children names were the same as those of Elias and Wilhemina so I am sure they are one in the same people. The children were Caroline, Mary, Jenny, Sophiana, Aloysius,and William. Aloysius was my grandfather.

As I have been unable to locate any further info on Elias (Lewis) or Wilhelmina (Philipine)after the 1880 census,any information would be helpful.


Aloysius married Emma Osborne, from Moosic Pa in 1888.

Emma was the daughter of Thomas and Johanna Arthur Osborne who immigrated to Moosic Pa from Wales in 1866

They had the following children: Michael, Cornelius, Mary,Anna, Emma, William and James.

Again after the 1880 census Thomas and Johanna were lost however, I have found a lot of information on their children all of whom with the exception of William have remained in N.E. Pa.
William moved to Calfornia.

If you have any information on either of these families, please contact me.
