My name is Wolfgang Schmied from Berlin/Germany. In the year of 1946 my father interviewed his mother about the years in northern bohemia where our families originate from. Reading the text awoke my interest in doing some research on it, especially on the included section "Who was Adelheid". Plenty of Effenbergers have been metioned there, but my interest is focussed on the Adelheid family. ++++++++++++++ Adelheid (*Franze about 1856) was a cousin of my father"s mother. She was married to Julius Effenberger from Voigtsbach/Bohemia where they owned a house with a big garden.They lived from a quarry. They had three children. The oldest was Julius, born about 1875, followed by Rudolf and Hugo. Julius Effenberger (the father) migrated into the States around 1900, followed by his oldest son Julius a little later. They bought a quarry and started a farm, too. Unfortunatedly, Julius (the father) had an accident and his wounds did not heal up so that he decided to return to Europe again. He died in Habendorf/Bohemia probably 1908. Mother Adelheid now became active. Still owing house and quarry, she started a very profitable production of mineral water and lemonade. One year after Julius (the father) had come back, Julius (the son) came back too. He married a girl from Habendorf and they ran guesthouses in Reichenberg and Ratschendorf and a quarry in Grottau (all the towns in Bohemia). Then they sold the quarry and went to the USA for one year. Back in Voigtsbach they saw Rudolf marriing the sister of Julius" (the son) wife. Rudolf was an engraver for stones. All four together now migrated into the USA where they start a larger stone workshop together. Hugo, the youngest son of Adelheid now married and went 1914 to the USA. One year later (1915) Adelheid, together with Hugos wife Emilie and Hugos daughter Gerda
followed. In 1919 Adelheid, Emilie and Gerda returned for some months to bohemia. A last time they crossed the ocean and shortly after Adelheid died.+++++++++++ In the Internet I have found "History of Cozy Valley and its People as I Knew it" by Stan Popko (Mellen, march 1986): "...was Black Gabbro Quarry, which was started by the Effenberger brothers." . On investigating PlatBooks I have found two Effenbergers as property owners in Maple Valley. Also ther must be an Effenberger jeweller (stone engraver) somewhere in this area. I am very much interested in further information around the Effenbergers even if they do not meet exactly the Adelheid family.
