I had suggested that you first search the Chicago City Directories for 1880
and some years following to see if your ancestors stayed at the same place
for any length of time.
First off, I have a question, what leads you to believe that your
PFANNERSTILLs where living at this address in 1880? Was it perhaps
mentioned on a marriage certificate?
I did some checking on how to best go about in finding the WARD in which
105 Cornelia in Chicago was located around 1880.
After visiting the homepage of the Chicago Genealogical Society, I found
that there were/are two streets named Cornelia - one is Cornelia Street the
other is Cornelia Avenue. I don't know if both existed in 1880.
To search the 1880 census of Chicago it is absolutely essential that you
know the WARD in which they lived in.
I found that in 1900 - after the death of their parents - Edward (17),
Arthur (15) and Rosie (20) resided with George and Kate JOHNSON on Austin
Ave - no house number. Did Kate Pfannerstill marry a George Johnson?
How about Theresa? Did she marry a man named 'Bielowski'?
I also found out that PFANNERSTILL was the original spelling of their name,
although sometimes their name was spelled differently.
There is an excellent manuscript about the families who immigrated from
Bohemia/Austria to Milwaukee. Included in the name index is the
PFANNERSTILL family, of which there are quite a number living in Milwaukee.
You can google using the surname "Pfannerstill" or click on the link "Aus
dem Egerland nach Milwaukee or Wisconsin" I don't remember the exact title.
While the title is in German, the actually manuscript is written in
English. It will help you understand the region from which the
