Arrived in the US 16 JUL 1853 on the ship Elsie, age 28, from Bremen, to NY. He was accompanied by Victoria Memminger, age 20. Applied for naturalization on Oct 23, 1856. 1860 census at LeRoy. 1870 census lists the name of Phebe (nickname) for mother Victoria and daughter Victoria. 1880 Census showed Michael and his wife Victoria and their children Victoria, Barbara, Michael Jr, and John living in LeRoy, WI. Andrew was living there outside the home. However, the spelling was listed as SCHNIEDBAUER not Schmidbauer.

The St. Andrew's Catholic Church (LeRoy) cemetery records list 13 Schmidbauers as being buried there, Michael being one. Schmid = Smith, Bauer = Farmer Schmidt (more common), Schmitt, and Schmid are variations of the same name.

Death - Johannon March 20, 1874, parents Michael and Victoria

There were two Michael Schmid(t)bauer's in LeRoy during the 1860-1880s one with the birth date 1824 (my ancestor), and the other Schmidtbauer with a birth date of 1837. Immigration records have them arriving in different ships, from the same port of Bremen, same year but one month apart.

There is speculation that the two Michael's were related in some fashion with a common mother of Theresa Petronella. This is reinforced by a review of the census records showing that they lived very close to one another with the same spelling of their last name Schmidtbauer. In review of the church records of St. Andrew's Catholic Church in LeRoy, I can find no linkage between the two Michaels, or there children, on baptisms, marriages, etc. Many of these documents reference other people.

I therefore conclude, based upon this data, that at this time, these two people are not related.
