I’ve had the marriage record for Andreas Dauer and Maria Aumiller from Gluszyna, Czapury, Wielkopolskie, Poland (Poznan) for sometime, and realized I had never posted it here.

Andreas Dauer and Maria Aumiller were my great-great grandparents and I learned of their existence through the baptismal records of their grandchildren, Robert and Mary Plenzler. I was surprised to see that the priest noted the lineage of two of the children of Joseph Plenzler and Eva Dauer to include grandparents. I was then able to locate the marriage record for Andreas and Maria through the Poznan Project.

Here is the record, transcribed as best as  possible.

1857
No. 9
Annus et dies benedictiones sacerdotalis: 29 Februarii — The marriage took place November 27, 1857.
Nomen sacerdotis benedictionmen sacerdotalem administrantis: J. Tomaszewski — The priest who officiated the marriage was J. Tomaszewski.

Nomen, praenomen et cognomen sacro ritu coniunctorum. Sedes conditio et professio, et nomen benedictio sacerdotalis en ecclesia vel domi peracta sit. The names/personal names and family names of those who wish to be joined in the sacred right of marriage before this church.
Andreas Dauer, vid., (widower)
et and
Marianna Aumiller, virgo (maiden)

Utrum iam prius conjugum iniverint, nec non utrum ad hue sub potestate parentum vel tutorum sint.
Liberi (they are free to marry)

Aetas ages
Sponsi: 44 Groom, 44
Sponsae: 30 Bride, 30

Religio sponsi, sponsae Religion of the bridge and groom is Catholic

Consensus parentum et tutorum cum concentio parentum sponsi et patri sponsae: Cum cons. jur. IIIB 1099 D. 636

Dies proclamationes: Marraige banns (announcements of the intent of marriage were made)
24, 25, et 25 post Pentec. (liturgical 24, 25, and 26 weeks, after Pentecost)

Dies dispensationum, si qua forent: nulla Were proper dispensations made in case of annullment due to form (Null–widower, maiden)

Nomen, conditio et professio testium qui benedictioni sacerdotali adfuerunt: Name and identification of witnesses: Mathias Olejiniazak (sp?) de (of) Babki et (and) Joannes Neihaus (sp?) de (of) Czpury

So we know that Andreas was married previously. I am unsure of any Dauers or Aumillers who have emigrated to the Toledo, Ohio area; although I have stumbled upon records of some in the region, I have not been able to make any direct link to them. There is no mention of heritage or lineage in this record although two names were mentioned for witnesses.

Leo was the last child of Eva Dauer and Joseph Plenzler. He was born March 14, 1899 and baptized in St. Anthony’s Parish on March 19, 1899. Leo’s baptismal record is transcribed below:

Ego infrascriptus baptizavi Leonem
Natum 14 Martii
ex Josepho Plencler et Eva Dauer
Patrini fuerunt Adalbertus Toda, Josepha Majchrzak
F.S. Motulewski

I located Leo on the 1920 census, living with his siblings Robert, Mary, and Frank at the family home at 1451 Avondale. What is particularly interesting about this census is that there is also a family listed at the same address of Sophia and Steve Szymanowski. Where there two Sophia Szymanowskis? Did Sophia Plenzler marry a Szymanowski? Frank married Sophia Szymanowski. Did Sophia Szymanowski have a sibling named Steve? More investigation in the near future! (I do believe this is the case, but have not plowed through the census records yet.)

Leo’s World War I draft registration provided is occupation as a presshand at the Toledo Metal Wheel company (you’ll need to scroll down the page a bit to find the article on Toledo Metal Wheel).  Here is also an interesting blog post about the Toledo Metal Wheel company.

I have no details about Leo’s marriage; however, he married a woman named Harriet. This marriage produced two sons: Leon and Phillip.

Leo passed away April 27, 1963 at the age of 65. His obituary was published in the Toledo Blade April 28, 1963 and is transcribed below.

Leo J. Plenzler, 64, of 520 Detroit Ave., died yesterday in Toledo Hospital of a heart ailment.

A lifelong Toledo resident, Mr. Plenzler was a set-up man 35 years at the DeVilbiss Co.

Surviving are his wife, Harriet; sons, Leo, Jr. and Phillip J., sisters, Mary and Mrs. Sophie Szymanowski, and brothers, Robert and Frank, all of Toledo.

The body is in the Sujkowski Mortuary. Services will be Wednesday at 9 a.m. in St. Stanislaus Church, with burial in Calvary Cemetery.

Sophia was the 9th child of Eva Dauer and Joseph Plenzler. I have located Sophia on the 1900 and 1910 census records for the family and have also located her baptismal certificate. It seems Sophia disappears into history!

Sophia was born April 25, 1897 and baptized May 2, 1897 in St. Anthony’s parish. Her baptismal record is transcribed below:

Ego infrastriptus baptizavi: Sophiam Plencner
Natam: 25 Aprilis
ex Joseph Plencler et Eva Dauer
Patrini fuerunt: Joannes Przybylski, Josepha Jawkowiak
F.S. Motulewski

I am researching this further, but I cannot locate a death record or marriage record yet for her.

Many thanks to Judy Stewart for this picture. Aren’t they a beautiful couple? Married November 8, 1879 in Gluszyna.

Frank was the seventh child of Joseph Plenzler and Eva Dauer, born February 8, 1895. All records I’ve located stated his birth as 1896, but the St. Anthony’s baptismal register shows that Frank was born in 1895. His baptismal record is transcribed below:

A.D. Die Mensis: 17 Feb.
Ego infrascriptus baptizavi: Fransiscus ??
natum 8 Februarii
ex Josepho Plencner
et Eva Dauer
Patrini Fuerunt: Franciscus Szerpa??, Maria Falkenstejce (sp?)
Rev. V. Zaleski

Frank was enlisted into the Army in World War I. A copy of his World War I draft card is here. His draft card notes his employment at Seiss Manufacturing, a manufacturer that produced and sold bicycle parts. As a bit of nostalgia, here is a link to an advertisement for Seiss bicycle horns published in Boys’ Life Magazine, March 1921.

As with his brother, Robert, a record of his World War I service is provided in the Ohio Soldiers, Sailors and Marines, World War 1917-18. The record for Frank in the Ohio Soldiers, Sailors and Marines, World War 1917-1917 is transcribed below:

Sophia Szymanowski was the daughter of Michael and Maryanna Jablonski, born September 25, 1897 and baptized September 27, 1897. Her baptismal record is transcribed below:

Sophia and Frank married between 1920 and 1930. The 1930 census placed them at 1240 Campbell Street. One son is produced from this marriage, Edwin, born about 1927. Edwin never married and passed away June 14, 1974. He was buried through St. Anthony’s Parish and interred at Calvary Cemetery.

Sophia’s obituary was published February 22, 1990 in the Toledo Blade and is transcribed below:

Sophia Plenzler, age 92 years, formerly of Campbell St., died on Wednesday, February 21 in the Toledo Hospital. Preceded in death by her husband, Frank and son, Edwin. Survived by sister, Mrs. Clara B. Zion of Tiffin, OH; also nieces and nephews. Funeral services will be Friday 12:30 p.m. from the Sujkowski & Son Funeral Home, Airport Hwy.

Bob was the sixth child born to Eva Dauer and Joseph Plenzler. He was born January 3, 1891 and baptized January 4, 1891 in St. Stanislaus Parish. It’s interesting to note on Bob’s baptismal record that his mother’s lineage is noted. Look closely at the record for Boleslaw Plencner (the first record on the page).  Here is a transcription:

Datum Nativ. and Baptism
3rd Januarii Natus
4th Jan. Bapt.
Nomen: Boleslaus
Genus: Mas
Thorus: Leg.
Parentes: Plencner (Plenzler), Josephus, fil Josephi et Evae Dauer
Dauer, Eva fil Andrea et. Marianna n. Omler
Patrini: Michael Brzoskov (sp?) et Antonia Szcrepankorvska (sp?)

So, a clue to Eva’s mother would be that Marianna’s maiden name may be Omler. Also, when transcribing Mary Plenzler’s baptismal record, I have found that Marianna’s maiden name was provided as Aumiller. (I will provide more information on Mary on the next post.)

I can find no reason for naming the paternity of the mother, and yet all children born during this period have the paternity of their parents provided as well. Additionally, the priest’s name is not provided.

Bob was listed as living with the family at 1541 Avondale at the time of the 1910 census, he would have been about 19 years old at the time.

It appears Bob was drafted into the Army during World War I. His World War I draft card provides his employment as a carpenter. He was listed in the Ohio Soldiers, Sailors and Marines, World War, 1917-18 (as was his brother, Frank). Both Bob and Frank served at Meuse-Argonne and with the American Expeditionary Forces. Bob was also listed as having served at the battle of St. Miheil. Bob was honorably discharged from the Army on July 21, 1919.

A transcription of Bob’s record in the Ohio Soldiers, Sailors and Marines, World War, 1917-1918 is below:

PLENZLER, ROBERT F.
3093314, White
1541 Avondale Ave.,
Toledo, O.

NA LB 4 Toledo, O. June 26/18. Br Toledo, O. Feb 8/95. 158 Dep Brig to July 18/18; Co F 336 Inf to Oct 5/18; Co K 358 Inf to disch. Pvt. Meuse-Argonne. AEF Sept 9/18 to June 8/19. Ho disch June 15/19.

The 1930 census shows Bob living again at 1541 Avondale with his sister, Mary and employed as a machinist at a steel mill. It appears as if neither Bob or Mary ever married but continued to live together to support each other.

Bob died December 11, 1973 and was buried at Calvary Cemetery. His obituary was published in the Toledo Blade on December 12, 1973 and is transcribed below:

Robert Plenzler

Robert F. Plenzler, 83, of 1541 Avondale Ave., died Tuesday in his home. He was employed 12 years by the Acklin Stamping Co., retiring 18 years ago. Earlier he had worked 25 years for the Toledo Metal Wheel Co. He was a World War I veteran. Surviving is his sister, Mrs. Sophia Szymanowski. The body is in the Sujkowski Mortuary. Services will be Friday at 10 a.m. in St. Stanislaus Church. The Rosary will be recited Thursday at 8 p.m.

He was buried at Calvary Cemetery through St. Stanislaus parish. The burial record from the church is transcribed below:

Vincent was a bit of an accidental find for me. While browsing St. Anthony’s baptismal records to locate Kaiser (Casper or Charles), I stumbled upon Vincent.

Vincent was the fourth child born to Eva Dauer and Joseph Plenzler. He was born July 3, 1886 and baptized July 18, 1886. He passed away January 4, 1887 per St. Anthony Parish interment records. I have no burial records. Calvary Cemetery’s burial records begin in late 1887, prior to Vincent’s death.
