About Angela Regina Bruening

Descendants of Angelina Regina Bieker

Generation No. 1

1. ANGELINA REGINA2 BIEKER (HEINRICH1) was born 10 Oct 1829 in Germany, and died 16 Aug 1916 in Dubois Co, IN. She married ADOLPH BRUNNING 28 May 1861 in Dubois Co., IN. He was born 1830 in Germany, and died Aft. 1910.

Notes for ANGELINA REGINA BIEKER:

Brian Arnzen:

Franz M. Bieker immigrated to the USA in 1848 from Schreibershof, Drolshagen area of Germany. He lived in southern Indiana, then Idaho. The house where he was born will be 250 years old this summer, and there will be a reunion in Germany for all Biekers from this family. If you are interested please contact me for more information. barnzen@aol.com

Regina was 31 or so when she married Adolf-- could she have been married before?? 31 is rather old for a woman to marry in those days, especially when most of the women did not live to see their 50th birthdays. HKeusch

Notes for ADOLPH BRUNNING:

Dubois Co. Immigration book-- p. 84

Gerhart Heinrich Bruening-- native of Prussia

departure port-- Bremen

arrival port-- Baltimore on Jan 5, 1854

Court date (declaration) on May 11, 1856, age 41

(I didn't find where he took his final oath of citizenship).

I don't know if the above Gerhart fits with Adolph (possibly an older brother), but I recorded it. It was the only Brunning/Bruening I found in the immigration book.

_____________________________

I spelled exactly as they appeared (as I thought) on the census-- HKeusch

I think this could be them in 1860 in Hall Twp. I don't think there was a Marion Twp until 1870. I am going strickly on the first name of the female in this case:

Hall Twp, Dubois Co., #87

Francis Baker 35 Germany

Legane 30 Germany

(Francis is not Adolph, but could Adolph have gone by another name? and the year is off-- or, could Regina have been married previously? She was 30 in 1860 and didn't marry the Brunning until 1861. It just seems strange that a woman in those days is first marrying at age 31. I am recording this census for reference only. HKeusch).

1870 census of Columbia Twp, Dubois Co., #139:

Aldoph Brevings 40 Prussia farmer

Rachel 39 Prussia

Mary 8 IN

Rosey 6 IN

Catherin 3 IN

(value of real estate was $1000, personal property was $200--I think, couldn't read the first number-- parents of Adolph and Rachel were foreign born. Also, Rachel is often used for Regina.--HKeusch)

1880 census of Marion Twp, Dubois Co., IN, #170:

Adolph Preuning 50 farmer married Prussia Prussia Prussia

Regina, wife 51 Prussia Prussia Prussia

Mary 18 daughter house help IN Prussia Prussia

Rosina 15 daughter house help IN Prussia Prussia

Katherina 13 daughter house help IN Prussia Prussia

1900 census of Marion Twp., Dubois Co., IN, #104:

       Breniks, Adolf     b. Mar 1831   age  69  md 40 yr  GER GER GER  farmer	
       Regina, wife  b.  June 1830  age 69  md 40 yr   3 ch/ 2 living  GER GER GER

Adolph has lived in the US for 41 years, entered in 1859; Regina has the same numbers.

1910 census of Marion Twp,Dubois Co., In, #126:

Adolph Brenning 80 Md once md 50 yr GER GER GER farmer

Lagena 81 md once md 50 yrs 3 ch/ 1 living GER GER GER

(Regina's name looked like it began with an L. The census stated that Adolph came to the US in 1847 and was naturalized. Regina came in 1845.).

The 1900 and 1910 census give difference immigration dates. I didn't find any Brunnings in the Dubois Co immigration book. Regina would not be listed as she was female.

Notes for JOHN BERNARD "BEN" SCHEPERS:

Gerhard was born to Henry and Mary Seger Schepers on Dec 6, 1837 and had one brother, Bernard, born Dec 14, 1835 and a sister Anna born in 1840.

The children came to America with their parents-- They embarked at Bremen and arrived in New Orleans on Dec. 24, 1854. Henry and Mary settled in the Celestine area, where Mary had a brother and sister living. Henry traveled to Vncennes for some reason and either froze to death or died of pneumonia.
