Seeking information on Elise HOBACH, b abt 1828, and Wilhelm D THUMANN, b abt 1824. Wilhelm D may have been a seaman, as I found several records identifying a Wilhelm Thumann of about the right age, shipping out of Bremerhaven, Germany. I have a photo of Elise Hobach Thumann and her second husband, possibly named Meier / Meyer / Meiers / Meyers, taken about 1870 to 1880 in Steinau, in what was the Electorate of Hanover at the time. Steinau is currently located in the Land Kreis of Cuxhaven, in Niedersachsen, Germany. Elise and Wilhelm had at least five children.
