Of interest:

  • According to wikipedia: The term "teamster" originally referred to a person who drove a team of draft animals, usually a wagon drawn by oxen, horses, or mules. This term was common by the time of the Mexican-American War (1848) and the Indian Wars throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries on the American frontier.
  • Janus' wife, Christina is the sister of Mathias' wife Pauline. 
  • Albert is Christina's son from a previous marriage...according to the newFamilySearch.org family group sheet Christina was married to an Albert Miller in 1869. I haven't found a census for them yet but will look for that next.
  • The second daughter's name is listed in newFamilySearch as Lucinda which makes a lot more sense then Lucinida.
