Notes of Interest


Note from Linda Robin

Dear Tom: I was excited to find your Gegenheimer web page. I am a descendent of Philip Gegenheimer and Catherine Steinbacher who settled in the New Orleans area in the mid 1800's. They were my great-great-great grandparents. Their daughter, Jacobina married Benjamin Reuben Stone - they were my great-great grandparents. I am a descendent of their oldest daughter, Catherine Elizabeth Stone. I have many corrections and additions to the outline you have displayed, and would like to contribute it to your page. Unfortunately, I don't know how to get the file to you. So if you could give me instructions

I'd be happy to send it to you. I do have Family Tree Maker that can put families in outline form. It may take a few days for me to get it to you because my file is giving me problems and I have a few additions to make to it.

Back to Philip Gegenheimer: I know he was a baker. In 1860 he was living in New Orleans and working in a bakery. By 1870 they had moved to Gretna (a large German Community) a few miles from New Orleans and opened up their own bakery on Lafayette Ave. My great-grandmother, Catherine Elizabeth Stone used to tell my mother about how they used to deliver bread from boats on the Mississippi River which is where she met my great-grandfather, Henry Laque. Something else of note: Jacobina and Benjamin Stone had two daughters named Catherine.

The oldest was Catherine Elizabeth who married Henry Laque. The youngest was Catherine Shannon who married Wilton Laque, cousin of Henry.

If there is anything I can help you with, just let me know.

Sincerely, Linda Robin
