  • CONF: 1834 Feilbingert, Pfalz, Germany 19
  • ADR1: 566 Adam St. in the 6th Ward (at time of death)
At her death, she was a widow living at 566 Adam St., in the 6th Ward.
She had been in the United States for 43 years and a resident of Buffalo for 43 years.
Burial location (Concordia) is from St. Peters church records of her death (1891). This has been confirmed by her presence on the index of Concordia cemetery records. But her tombstone was not found by me in 2000. [Someone else did find it for me, and sent me a photograph which I have in my possession. She's near her brother, Heinrich.]
We have two birthdates for her. In Buffalo, on more than one occasion, we have her birth date as June 24, 1820; but Darcy finds her in Feilbingert, born on July 1, 1820. I'm wondering if her birthdate is June 24, and her baptism date July 1. Worth another review.

Elisabetha and Leonhard move into 566 Adams around 1867 or 1868. (First appearance of them there is in the 1868 city directory, which means they probably moved in within the year before.) They have all the children they're going to have, including their 17-year-old son, Philipp Leonhard. A few doors down from them, at 576 Adams is the widow fishmonger Regina Erhardt Fassnacht, with her three daughters, including 16-year-old Elizabeth. Elisabetha & Leonhard Schmidt's son, Philipp L. Schmidt, will marry Elizabeth Fassnacht in October 1872, a month before Leonhard, dies. Philipp and Elizabeth will live down the street at 614 Adams.
Elisabetha's daughter, Catherine, marries Frank Schueler (in 1871) and also lives down the street at 689 Genesee where Adams ends into it.
