|Neuenschwander - Genealogy|
Note: No grave has been found yet for Nathaniel or Mary Louise. A funeral card for Nathaniel was found in my grandparents' papers but only the dates were on it without the place of enterment. Wife of "Rufus" was Della Prichard.
Rhoda Ann appears on one census age 8 in Vicksburg, Jewell Co., Kansas. A birth certificate was found for her in Antwerp, Ohio. However she was unknown to my father's generation so must have died young. We have been unable to find a grave for her in Cloud or Jewell Counties in Kansas.
Nathaniel Rufus Niceschwander used a different spelling than the rest of the family
|Johannes Neuenschwander age 29, wife Maria Guesbulher age 32, and children Johan Jacob 2 years, Maria Anna 4 years, Maria Luisa .04 years and Maria Sophia 5 years left Rotterdam on the ship Rhine headed for New York with a final destination of Ohio. The ship arrived in New York August 2, 1850 but only Johannes and Maria Sophia lived through the trip, the rest being buried at sea. (This is in the obit for Sophia.)
Both Johannes and Maria Sophia Americanized their name. Johannes became John and Maria Sophia became Sophia M Neuenschwander. Later John further changed the last name to Niceschwander.
Nathaniel Rufus Neuenschwander b. July 15,1856 has been proven to be one of John's sons. In the house hold of John and his second wife the census of 1860 shows this son. However John and Catherine Frazier / Frazee / Phrany / Phraner (last name depends on what record you look at) married September 4, 1856.
He and Catherine then had 11 children of their own or 12 if Nathaniel is hers. She thus raised 13 in all.
