Die Familie von Samuel u. Pauline (geb. Schwarz) GASSENHEIMER

The family of Samuel & Pauline GASSENHEIMER is another branch of the Gassenheimer family of Bibra. Samuel and Pauline were born in the early decades of the 19th century and moved to Coburg in the late 1830s after the birth of daughter Amelia in 1837.

No members of this branch lived in Themar as far as we know, but they connected with the family of Samuel (b. 1837 Bibra) & Lotte (née Stein) family of Themar through the sponsorship of Ruth Gassenheimer, daughter of Georg and Selma (née Schwab) Gassenheimer, to the United States during the Nazi Regime. When we found Ruth’s entry on the 7 April 1939 list of passengers entering the United States below, we discovered that Leo Gassenheimer of Montgomery, Alabama was her sponsor. We asked the question: “Who was ‘cousin: Leo Gassenheimer, 124 Commerce Street, Montgomery, Alabama,” and this led to further discoveries backwards and forwards.

Normally, the Nackommenlisten/Descendants Lists on this site are compiled with significant input from family members, but there has been no contact as yet. Wherever a direct (and free) internet link to the source of information is possible, the link is included; other sources are listed at the bottom.
