Looking for parents of Herman Morris Phelps b. 1825 Prussia d. 1870 Charlotte, NC

+5 votes
I'm trying to find parental information on Herman Morris Phelps.  He ran a dry goods store in Cabarrus County that closed in 1865.  I know he was born in Prussia (Germany) and can find no records of his mother or father. He married Theodocia Suares (1841-1903).  He was a founder of the Charlotte Hebrew Cemetary and was the first person buried there.

Did not find either of his parents. There may be someone or more than one person who can pinpoint his parents in Prussia (Germany).

Hi Frank: Yes, this is the correct HM Phelps. I am stumped trying to find out how to find his parents. I hope someone can help with that part! The 1870 census info you posted includes a child I am unaware of (Ann) and does not include Aaron (my gr-gr-grandfather). Aaron was the eldest, so it's strange he's not listed. Thank you for posting this.
