Notes

Note N147.

From the Census record of 1900 taken in Galveston: 1

Residence: 3716 Broadway.

Wife: Clementine Birkmeyer, born 1-1842 in Louisiana. Her father.

was born in Louisiana and her mother was born in France.

For Henry: Born 11-1842 in Louisiana. Father and mother both born.

in Germany. 1

New as of 4-8-08, found online, N.O. City Directory for 1868: 1

Birkmeyer, Henry; foreman, copper shop; 92 Girod r. 68 Congress, d. 3 Birmingham PeterSt. Mary b. Religious & Rousseau. 1

From the 1879 City Directory of New Orleans:

Birkmeyer, H.S. tinner, G.W.W. Goodwyn; Laurel corner Berlin. 1

From the 1880 City Directory of New Orleans:

Birkmeyer, Henry, Tinner, residence, southside Laurel between Milan.

and Berlin. 1

The only other Birkmeyer's listed prior to that in New Orleans is a August Birkmire (note different spelling, he may not be related) at Burdette Carlt. This is from a 1853 city directory. 1

From a 1840 census record there is this listing:

Birkmire, S. Orleans 130 New Orleans. That means on Page 130 of the.

census for Louisiana you'll find this record:

Birkmire, S. age between 20-30, wife, between 20-30, daughter.

under 5.

Henry Birkmeyer doesn't appear in the Galveston Census record for 1910, which raises the question of where did he go?.

He may not be in the Census Record for 1910 because he more than likely died between 1900 and 1910. Reason? He is listed in the City Directory for Galveston for 1909-1910. At the time he is listed as living with his son Henry Sebastian Birkmeyer Jr. at 3402 Winnie. No other city directories between 1910 and 1917 were available, so it.

is not certain if he died later. But it's highly probable that the directory is a two-year directory and he may have died in 1910 after the directory was published and before the 1910 Census. 1

By the way, he was listed in every city directory where he was as a tinner, except for the 1909-1910, in which he is listed as a fireman with the Galveston Water Works. In fact, he is listed in the 1896-97 city directory for Galveston.

as a tinner for Fredrick and Keats. At that time he lived, where the 1900 Census found him, 3716 Broadway. 1

Also there was some question in my mind as to when Henry came to Galveston. Well it seems it has to have been some time between 1880, when he is in the N.O. 1880 C.D. , and 1882-83, when he.

is listed as a resident of the northwest corner, on the west side of Avenue I (Sealy) and 33rd Street. 1

Things to check: Death records for 1910.

Death record for Alex V. Birkmeyer, 1905 in Galveston County.

Galveston City Directory of 1882-83. City Directory of 1896-97. City Directory of 1909-10.

He doesn't appear in the Galveston City Directory for 1919.
