Today I am researching the lineage of Anna Hermes, a sister of Joseph Hermes, who is my direct ancestor. Here is what I have found:

Jacob Englehart married Anna Hermes in Sangamon County, IL Feb 12, 1895. They then moved to Missouri (train? wagon?) before the end of that year, and had their first child in or near the Bear Creek Township in Henry County, MO.

Their children are:
**Christina G (Dec 1895)
**Clara A (May 1898) Clara worked as a servant girl and lived with the Mold family in Deepwater, MO, in 1910, and the Scott family in Kansas City, MO in 1920. She returned home sometime before the 1930 census.
**Henry J (Nov 1899)
**Margaret/Barbary K (Abt. 1902)
**Francis M (Abt. 1904)
**Agnes A (Abt. 1906)
**George L (Abt. 1912)
**Joseph S (Abt. 1914)

More information to come! If you are a member of this family, or are researching Hermes or Englehart families, please send me a message!
