Ancestors and Descendants
Frantz Joseph Schmitt (1822-1896)
Frantz Joseph Schmitt born in Alsace, Artolsheim 1 April, 1822. The oldest son of Johanne Baptist Schmitt and Maria Anna Steibli (Steübli). FJ. brought his wife Anna Maria Waltspürger and family to Gibson Co., Indiana in 1855 and soon moved to the St. Wendel area of Posey County. Three years later his father, mother and some of his siblings came to the area. In these records you will find information on the ancestor and descendant lines of Frantz Joseph.
Infomation on descendant line past each of Frantz Joseph's and Johanne Baptist's children has been compiled with the help of those relatives sending information to me. Documentation for this information is the responsibility of the provider. If there is a question about some part of information found here and documentation source is needed I will provide that source myself or refer you to the provider. If there are questions or errors noted please notify me so I can make corrections and post them. We have documented all dates and events found on the brothers, sisters and all eight children of F.J. so from these ancestor dates and back to the earliest of our research we have copies of the available event documents. This would include Birth, Baptism, Marriage and Death in no less than one event and up to all four events for each person listed. Below also are two links to home pages connected to the Schmitts of Posey County, Indiana
Names for those being born in France have been standardized here for simplicity. For example over the course of birth, marriage and death you will find FJ. listed as Francois Schmitt, Franciscus Josephus Schmitt and Frantz Joseph Schmitt.
