J. C. Mueller Family - Part 5: Chronology

Part 5 of "The J. C. Mueller Family." This was originally marked "IV-A" in my father's manuscript.

THE J. C. Mueller Family

IV-A. Chronology

Jan. 6, 1847, J. C. Mueller born (birth certificate: Jan. 6, 1847), came to the U. S. 'at the age of 20'=1867.

March 5, 1849, Louise Schirmer born (birth certificate: Mar. 5, 1849) (1900 U.S. Census: 'Born in 1850').

1866-67, Nicholas and Barbara Boerner (Borner) came to U. S. (obituaries). (1867 indicated as the year of Nicholas Borner's arrival in the U. S. in the 1900 U. S. Census.)

(Nicholas and Barbara Boerner were the parents of George Boerner, who married Amelia Schirmer; thus George was Louise Schirmer's brother-in-law. Although no direct cause and effect can be demonstrated, it seems likely that this was a direct influence in Amelia Schirmer's immigration three years later and Louise's immigration two years after her sister and brother-in-law. See p. 22)

Dec. 4, 1867, Gustave F. Borner born in Germany, second son of George and Amelia Schirmer Borner, the sister of Louise Schirmer. (Date from Bock Chronology, location from 1892 N. Y. State Census. His gravestone has 1868 as the date of his birth.)

1867, J. C. Mueller came to the United States (family tradition).

1869-70, George and Amelia Schirmer Borner (and their three oldest children) came to the United States (obituaries). (1870 indicated as the year of arrival in the U. S. of George and Amelia Borner in the 1900 U. S. Census.)

1872, Louise F. W. Schirmer came to the United States. (1900 U. S. Census: '28 years in the U. S.' 'Year of Immigration to U. S., 1872'). Source: 1900 Census, Microfilm Roll #1673, State of Texas, Travis County, Precinct #3, Austin, Enumeration District No. 95, Sheet No. 7, Line 47 (Lines 48-53 for six other family members), June 5, 1900.

1873, J. C. and Louise S. Mueller came to Austin. (From obituary of Louise S. Mueller) (This probably means the Austin area and Travis County, rather than the city proper of Austin.)

Nov. 1, 1875, 'Charles* Miller' bought 104 acres on Slaughter Creek in C(orbett) Stephens Survey No. 63, for $700 from George Heissner. (Vol. 31, pp. 238-9, Travis County records, filed Jan. 5, 1876) (This property partly owned by the Youngs in 1976, now sold). (*Ernest Thode of Marietta, Ohio, a genealogist and translator of German, has observed that 'Charles is the equivalent of Karl or Carl.' (The Marietta Times, Jan. 28, 1994))

January 20. 1886, J. C. Mueller bought 106 acres on Williamson Creek, part of the A. J. Bond and Thos. Anderson Labor, for $1000 from W. T. Nolen and S. F. Nolen [wife]. (Vol. 68, pp. 566-568, filed July 5, 1886, Travis County Records). (Could this be the same Nolen of the following transaction?)

Jan. 30, 1886, 'J. Charles Mueller' and wife 'Louis' sold the Slaughter Creek property to Thomas Nolen for $2000. (Vol. 66, pp. 42-3, filed Feb.[?] 1,1886, Travis County records).
