ENDRES, ESCHNER, FITZPATRICK, SHRADER posted by Michael Young on Wednesday, April 1, 1998

August Eschner-born December 25, 1878 in Alsace-Lorraine Germany to Richard and Harriet ESCHNER. Brother of Charles , Richard Jr. and Agnes FITZPATRICK. Richard ESCHNER - at the time of his death was married to Barbara ENDRES ESCHNER. Both obituaries notices list August as their child. August's death certificate states that his mother is Harriet SHRADER ESCHNER. He died before his father Richard. Also-Barbara's age is 11 at the time of August's birth. They came to America in 1881 but Barbara didn't arrive until circa 1894 which means she is not the natural mother of August, Charles or Richard Jr. born 1878, 1888 and 1892 respectively..- Cannot find anything on Harriet ESCHNER. Believed to have died prior to 1897.Any information will be helpful.
