Re: Sankt Hubert Look Up

Mark and Bill,

Peter (Johann Peter, Pierre) ADAM and Anne MARCHAL (entry 0005 in the FB) were the parents of Johann and Franz. They are also my 6G grandparents. The ADAM family comes from Aubécourt in Lorraine (some sources show Han sur Nied which was an adjoining village) and the MARCHAL family from Vittoncourt. Peter and Anne migrated in 1770 along with Peter’s brother Dominique and his family. Both families initially stayed in Bogarosch; Peter’s family moved to Saint Hubert, while Dominique’s family stayed in Bogarosch. 

Let me know if you need more information.

See attached for 5 pages of Adams, which should get you all of the male side in St. Hubert in the early years.  These are the first 5 pages in the book; take note of the entry above that for Franz Adam.  A Johann Adam who also marries a Perrein, and she is Catharina, vs. Franz Adam's wife who is Catharina Anna--brothers marrying sisters?  

There is nothing immediately obvious for Franz Adam's wife except her listing there as Catharina Anna Perrein.  However, this early St. Hubert book is a mess of variant spellings, and not even always in any kind of logical order, so it bears more research.  From a quick look, it might be that her family came from Bogarosch or Nakodorf, but also there are indications there of "Lorang Kath" and "Loth.".  I'll let you know if I find anything else.

Have fun,

Thanks so much, Bill.  Was there anything for Franz Adam (Adam is the surname)?
