August came to the U.S. aboard the ship Dorette, from Bremen to New Orleans, arriving 21 October 1867. This source gives his age as 29, which conflicts with his headstone (a year younger in 1839).
Coming with him were wife, Hanna, 2 children, and brother Leopold. August's birth year was 1838 according to ship records, which would be less reliable.
On August's tombstone: Zu Ahmsen Amt Schötmar Lippe Detmold;
Ahmsen is the community they were from, a part of the community of Biemsen-Ahmsen, in Amt Schötmar, county of Lippe, seated at Detmold.
The headstone is on the NW corner of lots.
The Quincy family residence in the 1876 City Directory was- Alley S. Washington 1 house east of 5th. Their residence in the 1906 CD was- 828 Jefferson. A later residence was 1109 Washington.
The pictures in this set are of the 3rd building of Kilianskirche. The first building was built around 1000. It was rebuilt on the same location in 1150. The current church was built around the 2nd in 1846. Therefore, August was merely 7 years old at the time of the building of the 3rd (current) church. His baptism would have taken place in the 2nd church that dated from 1150.
Burials in the church cemetery were stopped in 1847.
Carl married Hanna Louisa Wilhelmina Nebel, daughter of Johann Philipp Nebel and Johanna Stuckmann, on 27 Nov 1864 in Ahmsen, Schötmar, Lippe-Detmold, Germany. (Hanna Louisa Wilhelmina Nebel was born on 9 Oct 1838 in Westervinnen, Schötmar, Lippe-Detmold, Germany, christened on 14 Oct 1838 in St. Kilianskirche, Schötmar, Lippe-Detmold, Germany, died on 27 Jul 1920 in Quincy, Adams Co., Illinois and was buried on 30 Jul 1920 in Greenmount Cemetery, Quincy, Adams Co., Illinois.)
