I have record of a Joseph Duerr who maried Maria Baumann on 7-7-1728, I believe in Fishlingen, Germany. I only have the name of 1 chil Balthazar Duerr who married Elizabeth Kopfer, 1-15-1789. Again I only have the name of one child Lorenz Duerr who married Zazalier Sizef on 11-25-1836, only the name of one child Fridolin Duerr (died:1-6-1911) married Franziska Heitzler (died: 11-2-1899)on 11-26-1862. They had 12 children but I only have the name Maria Magdalena Duerr. She was the 8th child born 7-22-1878. I am not sure if she was born in Burkheim, Germany or if that is where they where married. she married Valentine Frank Schmitt on 11-26-1899 they had 4 children
Frances Genevieve, Joseph, Theodore Valentine, and Florence. She died 2-14-1971.
I am hoping that someone can help add some names and dates to my list.
I have an anastase Heitzler from Hessenheim (Ithink its part of Alsace France) married to Francois Meiss. Their daughter Catherina married Ferdinand Durr (from Alsace France)
I have the following:
Francis Joseph Duerr b Dec 4 1806 Alsace France d Apr 11 1878 buried St Stephens Cem Cincinnati OH m 1843 to Barbara Ritt b Apr 25 1925 d?.
The 1880 Census Hamilton Ward 2 shows Barbara a widow living with her son in law and dau Anna and Michael Riedel.

Valentine Francis Schmitt was born 2/14/1877 (his wife Mary
M. Duerr died 2/14/1970 in Saddle Rock NJ). His prents were Josef Anton Schmitt (b 8/31/1831 in Germany, b 9/9/1855 in Altheim, Germany, d 6/2/1912) & Genovefa Waigand (b 9/26/1833 in Germany, d 4/8/1883).
Franziska Heitzler (Mary Duerr's father)'s parents were Francis Heitzler & Katerina Bitzenhofer (m 10/1/1838 in Burkheim am Rhein, Kaiserstuhl, Germany.) Francis' parents were Konrad Heitzler & Catherine Kaufman (m 1/28/1799 in the Burkheim am Rhein, Kaiserstuhl, Germany.)
Hope this helps
I am related to Fridolin Duerr and Franziska Heitzler. They came to America in 1887 with their 12 children. Fridolin Duerr's parents are Sostenes Durr and Martha Haas married 11 Aug 1836. All of their children were born in Burkheim, Kaiserstuhl, Germany. The 12 children are in order of birth:
Emilie, Otto, Priska, Karoline, Franziska, Berta, Trudpest, Magdalena, Martha, Eugen, Julius and Adolf.
Priska is my great grandmother. She moved with her family to Bradford PA and then to Detroit MI. I would appreciate your help in filling in the New York Duerr Family.
I am interested in the Fridolin Duerr and Franziska Heitzler family that came to the US in 1887 with their 12 children. I have a Magdalena Duerr born 22 July 1878 on the information that I have as one of the 12 children. I believe this is also your Mary Duerr Schmitt. If this is the same (Mary) Magdalena Duerr my great grandmother was her sister.
I am willing to share information.
The information is not comlet, but I think still helpfull
