Rohr's in Sarrebourg
Hello, Hallo, Bonjour, Benno Karl Siegfried Rohr was born in Rosenthal, Prenzlau. Germany in 1840. He died on November the 7, 1905 in Sarrebourg. He married Philippine Louise Moehrlin on May 24, 1873. She was born on September 1, 1852 in Mülhausen in Alsace, and she died at her daughters home in Gießen, Hesse, Germany on February 24, 1929.
Benno Karl Siegfried Rohr was a head/royal tax and customs for the Prussian Army. They were well connected and fairly affluent. His death record is in the civil archives in Sarrebourg. He had four children that I know of.
Elisabeth Margaretha Albertine Luise Rohr born on October 27, 1875 in Strasbourg. Her birth record is in the Bas-Rhin civil archives. She married Fidel Oskar Vinzens Balken on February 14, 1920 in Gießen, Hesse, Germany. She died on January 3, 1954 in Gießen, Hesse.
Another child born in Strasbourg, Alsace at the time was, Clar Margaretha Luise Salomea Rohr born on May 28, 1877. Her birth record is in the Bas-Rhin civil archives. She married a man named Richard.
Another daughter was Thekla Rohr. That is all the information I have from her based on photos and data I receive from the Sarrebourg civil archives. She had a daughter named Madeleine Flesch-Mitteau.
The 4th child I know of is my grand-father. Friedrich Carl Alfred Rohr who was born in Strasbourg, Alsace on October 23, 1879. His birth record is in the Bas-Rhin civil archives. He moved from Germany at the time to Saddle River, New Jersey. He and his wife Ella Mae Simon had 9 children.
I am adding a photo of the family, parents and daughters in Sarrebourg around 1895.
I was hoping to find someone else that knows anything about this family, or is working on the genealogy of this family.
I have quite a bit more information, but want to respect the amount of space I can utilize here.
