Thanks for such a quick response. I was able to download the ship's manifest for Franz and Catherine Pfannerstill and their 3 kids. My records never did show a Maria age 6 months. Maybe she didn't survive. I next have a Joseph born Oct. 28, 1874 (taken from his registration for the draft in 1916). Catherine may have been pregnant during her voyage.
If they are not found in the 1880 census where else can I look? I did find them in the city directories for 1884-1886-1887 showing Frank Pfannenstill living at 105 Cornelia in Chicago. This is where my grandfather was born in 1885.
I found the death certificate for Frank with the surname spelled PFAUNENSTILL. Just by accident. I don't believe I found Frank anywhere in 1880. On later census I have the family saying they came to the US in 1873. I was lucky in one way. Most of my ancestors stayed in Chicago.
I haven't looked into the Pfannenstill family in Fremont Twp.yet. I have written to a few Pfannenstills in that area, to no avail.
