I need some help finding more about my Vonderheid origins. I have records for Louisa Vonderheid in Louisiana. There must have been a language barrier when they gave their information to record keepers. I have seen her name spelled Vonderheidte, Fundereide, Vonderheid prior to being married. She married George Well in New Orleans, LA, USA September 3, 1860. In the record, it was spelled Fundereide. In census records, she and George estimated their birth years differently every decade. Her birth place was listed as Germany, with dates ranging from 1837-1849. When one of their children died at five years old, the obituary was published in a German newspaper. Listed as Deutsche Zeitlung, 1866-08-25, Pg 4, Col 5, Death date 1866-08-24, Georg Well, 5 years old. She had another son Frederick Benedict Well (1864-1901, Louisiana). She had a daughter Johanna Louisa Well (1874-1960, Louisiana). She married George Reynolds December 9, 1901 in New Orleans, Louisiana.
I don't have any information on other Vonderheid relatives. I would love to know where in Germany they lived. I would also like to see if there are more that I can connect to my wikitree. I have not been able to find records for her immigration to the US. I don't know her parents' names or if she had siblings. Thank you for any help you can give.
