Maria's spouse was a Baumeister; believe they lived/died in Schlesien, Germany.  Did children remain there or move elsewhere?

Schlesien as Prussian province in the 19th century had the size of Kentucky (roughly 40,000 square kilometers) and 3.5+ million inhabitants.

There are a couple of notable people with your names of interest, though:

Joseph Ferche, auxiliary bishop of Breslau, born 1888 in Pschow, now Pszów, on the border to Czechia.

Horst Fuhrmann, a historian, born 1926 in Kreuzburg, now Kluczbork, on the eastern border of Upper Silesia.

Those would be the areas I would start looking.

And good luck!

Thank you! Josef (the bishop) was a cousin to my husband.  Maria (geb. Ferche in 1846) mrrd Fuhrmann, died 29 May 1923, so not likely this would be a correct Fuhrmann descendant.   The correct Fuhrmann was a Baumstr.; in area Groß Strehlitz; had 4 children.   Will keep searching.  Again, thank you!

If you read German, GenWiki has a page with resources for Schlesien.

Those Fuhrmanns may yet be related and that can help in finding common ancestors. Groß Strehlitz/Strzelce Opolskie is not far from Kreuzburg/Kluczbork.
