LÖWENBRÜCK

LÖWENBRÜCK

           

Links to the Helbron family come from the marriage of Johann Christian Helbron to Catharina Löwenbrück, daughter of François Löwenbrück and Madelaine Lemery, in 1769. Our Löwenbrück family records are traceable to the church records of Kemplich, Moselle, France and earlier to the town of Creutzwald, Moselle, France. Failure to locate any civil or Church records after ca 1800 has made it difficult to link with subsequent generations. Several Internet contacts have not been able to provide a definite link due to one or more generation gaps in available data.

 

Based upon passenger lists, censuses, and other available records, there is conclusive evidence that at least five separate Löwenbrück individuals (or families) emigrated to the U.S. between 1848 and 1909. Of these five, one said they were from Luxembourg, one from France, and three from Germany. If these individuals can be conclusively linked, their lineages will be added.

 

The “Unconnected Families” presented below are “possibilities”, but definite links cannot be confirmed at this time.

[NOTE: The following two family groups are likely connected but no specific records have been found to-date to link them to the mainline family. In the case of the second group, it is assumed that at least one and possibly two earlier generations are missing in order to link these to the mainline family. Generations in both groups are arbitrary.]
