I am looking for information on Magdalena (Margaret)
LUCHSINGER. I believe her parents were David and Anna
LUCHSINGER. She had a sister, Ursule, who immigrated to
Minnesota before her and married a Mr. MEYER. Margaret
married Henri MEYER at St. Petric Lutheran Church in St.
Paul, Minnesota in 1905. Their children were Vera born in
1911, Heinrich, David, Carl and Gloria (born about 1930).
Ursule brought Margaret to Minnesota after their brother,
David, was killed in a rockslide in Switzerland. Margaret
was arranged to marry Heinrick MEYER immediately upon
arrival to Minnesota. Any help would be appreciated.

I am researching my branch of the LUCHSINGERS in
Switzerland. My great-great-great-grandfather, Adam
LUCHSINGER (born 16 August 1830 in Switzerland, died 11
January 1896 at Rochester, New York) and his wife,
Christina Dorethea LEMPERT (born July 1823 or 1829 in
Switzerland, died 26 December 1902 at Rochester, New
York). They emigrated from Switzerland to America in
1866. They had a son, Mathias, born 7 June 1856. He did
not come to the United States until 1876. I am trying to
find the parents of Adam and Christina and a town in
Switzerland where they lived (most likely the canton of
Glarus). I am also trying to find out who took care of
Mathias while his parents were traveling and living here.
I believe that they were Catholics, but I am not sure.
That is the religion that my grandfather practiced.
Christina had a brother Bernard. He also immigrated to
Rochester, New York and then went on to Ohio. I do have a
possible link to Adam's father, but this is pure
speculation. There was an Adam LUCHSINGER, born in 1804,
who died in an avalanche in 1836 at Muehlebach. If he
were my Adam's father, he would've been 26 at the time of
his birth, so the dates make it a possibility. My Adam
would've been 6 at the time of his father's (?) death. If
this were my Adam's father, then his mother would've been
Anna STRUB of Schwanden. His brother would've been Peter
LUCHSINGER in Spicher. If the Adam LUCHSINGER (who died
in the avalanche) was my
great-great-great-great-grandfather, then my Adam
would've had a brother named Peter who died on 8 August
1854 as a soldier in Naples. My grteat-great-grandfather,
Mathias LUCHSINGER, married Catherine SCHNEIDER (born
1857, died 1886), from Alsace Lorraine. It is believed
that they married before coming to the US. She had two
siblings, George (born 1852, died 1918), and Julia (born
1864, died 1920). Julia married a Simon BARTHELMANN (born
1860, died ?). Does anyone know of any of these people
and connections between them?
