Part 160b – Brunhammer Doherty Genealogy – 1880 Birth – Great-Granduncle Joseph Michael Brunhammer

26 December 2009

Afternoon, and Happy Boxing Day, Wren’s Day, and the Feast of Saint Stephen,

And where ever you are, reading my Blog, all the joy for this 2nd day of Christmas, and all the best wishes to Todd and Dorana (née Hernandez) Brunhammer today, their wedding day.

I decided to present the 1880 birth of great-granduncle Joseph Michael Brunhammer. As far as the records that I have, he was the youngest son of gg-grandparents Jacob (Jacques) and Mary (née Marie Katz) Brunhammer. He was born in Gloucester City, New Jersey the 18th of January, 1880.

As you can see from the Birth Return there is no name written on the Certificate. A copy was obtained via VitalChek for Joseph Brunhammer and the other corresponding information cross-references to all other documents that we have been able to collect.

The following is the document received –


And transcribed –
JUNE ’79. STATE OF NEW JERSEY. B19
BIRTH RETURN.
SEE PENALTY FOR NON-REPORT.
Full name of Child (if any) – . Color – White
Date of Birth – January 18th, 1880. Sex – Male
Place of Birth – Ridgway St., Gloucester City, N.J.
Name of Father – Jacob Brunhammer
Maiden name of Mother – Mary Katz
County of Father’s Birth – France. Age – 42. Occupation – Engraver.
Country of Mother’s Birth – France. Age – 37.
Number of Previous Children – Ten (10). How many of them living – Seven (7).
Name and P.O. address of Medical Attendant, in his own handwriting, with date, _____ _____ _____ _____ _____, Gloucester City, N.J.

Based on the information extracted from the Birth Return, gg-grandparents Jacob and Mary had had 10 children born before Joseph’s birth in January 1880. And as it is written seven were still living. It is possible that the other three children were born and died in either France or the United States. The seven other children are: Charles; Eugène, Geies (aka Jules and Julius); Jacques A. (aka Jacob); Maria (aka Mary); Thomas (aka Camille); and Harry.

I’ve included a new Descendant Chart which follows the family line to great-granduncle Joseph Michael Brunhammer, his wife Sarah (née Gallagher) and their four children; Joseph A.; Mary (aka Marie); Grace; and Helen.



This is food for thought and the discussion will continue, so stay tuned.

Enjoy,

Jim
