About Romwald (Robert) Aicher

Immigration: 1851 New York, NY 4

Note:

The 1860 Federal Census for Des Moines Co, IA shows a carpenter Romald Aicher (32) living with his wife Catherine (28) and children Louis (5), Elizabeth (3), Lena (2), & William (5/12). He was born in "Wirtemberg", she in Bavaria, Louis in New York, and the 3 others in Iowa.

Most of the initial info about Romwald's family comes from Timothy C. Parrott of 1128 Spruce St., Iowa City, IA in a letter dated 1-11-1986 to C.A. Aicher of 5526 Wyoming Tr., Wyoming, MN 55092 and a letter dated 8-8-1995 to Pearl Aicher Nolan (e.g. with 1870 & 1880 U.S. Census info on this family).

He immigrated from Mahlstetten, Germany (with a brother who stayed in Pennsylvania?) and settled near Burlington, IA (where an early railroad crossed the Mississippi).

From Penny Nolan's research as posted by Russell E Sackreiter on 10-30-1999 on Ancestry.com:

Although his name appears in the church records as "Romualdus Aicher" his name appears as "Römwald Aicher" and "Robert Aicher" in American records.

Römwald Aicher probably emigrated to America between 1846 and 1852 through the port of New York City. Römwald Aicher became a naturalized citizen between 1849 and 1857. See Des Moines, Iowa county court records and Naturalization Index for 1849-1857, file number B 71.
