Research Notes

Note by: Koreen Goodman

  • 27 Jul 2018 email from Wayne Bonner, the AHSGR Moor VC regarding Katharina Barbara (Mabel) Wunder:
"I have researched the available documents for Moor and believe that I have found the Catharina Barbara Wunder that best fits your information: See attached chart and copy of 1857 census. She would not have been listed on the 1834 census because was not yet born. Although the census lists her age as 11 which would be about 1845/1846, she was actually born in 1842. There are 7 Catharina Barbara Wunders born about this time, but this one fits best. Even on the original documents, there is no umlat used. The records for Moor are fragmentary and the marriage of her parents is missing as is the birth of Johannes. However, her baptism lists her parents and Johannes [Wunder] and Barbara Erdmann who might have been from Grimm? The 1834 census does list the parents as well as the grandparents, from there I could extend back to the 1798 census and 1775 census as well as the first settlers. One of my projects is to located the Germany origin of each settler. I may have found the village of Maria Beckenback, but not for any of the others. the research continues. Hoping this information is useful. -Wayne"
  • Based upon relative who has last name as Wunder with no "s" and the 1957 Moor Russia census lists the last family names as Wunder, I've updated the record to reflect the correct last name. I have also updated her name to first letter "C".
  • I've updated the birth date from 1845 previously given to now 1842 to reflect the research of the Moor VC, Wayne Bonner.
