Pecher/Becher Family Genealogy

PECHER FAMILY HISTORY

Ancestor Johannes George Pecher, a land owner and farmer, resided in Muhlberg, Bohemia. The village is now called Lesik, Czech Republic. Johannes married Maria Rosina Lihl (Lill/Luhl).

His son was also Johann Pecher, and a land owner and farmer in Muhlberg. The junior son married Franziska Rezner of Bernau (Bernov). They had a son, Anton, who married Elisabeth Kraus (Krausz), daughter of Christian Kraus (Krausz) and Barbara Beringer of Rossmeisl (Rozmysl) on February 23, 1846 in Muhlberg.

Anton and Elisabeth had four known children, including my great-great-grandmother, Katharina Pecher, emigrant ancestor. Katharina was born in Muehlberg, House #4, as was her brother Wenzel.

I have identified one Anthony Pecher in the 1880 U.S. census in New York who may be the brother of Katherine (immigrant ancestor) and her brother Wenzel Pecher. This Anthony Pecher was born approximately 1851 in Bohemia (FHC Film 1254879; NA Film T9-0879; page 675A). He was a cigar maker by trade. His life was Louise (b: 1857). I have been unable to verify if this Anthony Pecher is the brother of Wenzel and Katherine Pecher.

It is likely that my Pecher branch descends from Michael Pecher (born 1512), who died abt. 1575. His son, Matheus/Mathias, was born in 1538 and died on March 8, 1607 in Neudek. This particular Pecher/Becher family had numerous intermarriages with the Lihl/Leuhl family. As my family line also includes the surname Lihl/Leuhl, it seems likely that it is my direct family line.

THE SUDETENLAND

The Pecher family resided in Muhlberg/Muehlberg, Bohemia, which is today the town of Lesik in the Czech Republic. The town has a population of 36 residents and is in the Sudetenland region, south and west of the larger city of Nejdek (Neudek).

The Sudetenland was formerly parts of both Germany and Austria. Neudek (Nejdek) is the largest town nearby, and is located in the province of Karlovarsk, sub-region Karlovy Vary. (Neudek is located here on a European map.) The current population of Neudek is 8,500.

Nejdek is located at 50 degrees, 20 minutes North, 12 degrees, 45 minutes East, 77.8 miles west northwest of Prague. It is in the district of Karlsbad (Karlovy Vary) and was formerly in the district of Elbogen in northwest Bohemia. Nejdek originated in in the first half of the Fourteenth Century as a trade route, which led to Saxony. In the Fifteenth Century, the town advanced in the silk and mining industries, and was known for its tin, silver, lead, and iron ore. A description of architecture in Nejdek is available here.

Additional information about Neudek can be found in All About Neudek and Northern Bohemia (1993) by Heinz K. Henisch and translated by Herbert F. Ullmann, both of whom grew up in Neudek. The book includes photos of Neudek's upper market, a squareview of Neudek (from the Kreuzberg), The Plessberg near Neudek, the gasthaus (hotel/restaurant) in Breitenbach, the Karlsbad hirschensprung monument to Kaiser Karl IV, the Karlsbad alte wiese ("the old common"), the Karlsbad Hotel Richmond, Karlsbad's pulsating hot spring (the sprudel), and goethestrasse 591, an original architectural sketch of the author's home in Neudek. Nineteenth Century information about the town is available in The Kingdom of Bohemia (volume 15) by Johann Gottfried Sommer. Volume fifteen is currently being translated by Urs Geiser of Woodridge, Illinois.

PECHER SURNAME IN SUDETENLAND

The family name Pecher in the district of Nejdek was very frequent until 1945. The first Pecher is documented in 1494, when the judge of Neudek, Endres Pecher confirmed a statute about tin-digging. Later in 1525, a Hans Pecher and a "klein" Hans Pecher, probably son and grandson of Endres Pecher, are mentioned in the tax list of the counts Schlick. The now existing parish books of Nejdek start at 1562 (baptism books), so that at least the names of the child's father will be known to possibly the year 1500 (with the assistance of the Schlick tax lists). The parish books are available in the West Bohemian Archive in Plzen (Pilsen), according to both the Dictionary of Bohemian Parishes in the Czech Republic by Felix Gundacker and Gerhard Pecher, who specializes in Nejdek genealogy and resides in Ingolstadt.

KATHERINA PECHER: EMIGRANT ANCESTOR


Katherine Pecher, likely taken between 1880 and 1890.



Katherine Pecher and her brother Wenzel.


Katherine Pecher Kolb.

On the ship Adler (Eagle) arriving in Baltimore on July 30, 1855, we find the following relatives: Johannes Schoenecker, 25, Anna (Pecher) Schoenecker, 24, and Wenzel Schoenecker, 9. They departed from Bremen. Others listed include Vincenz Schoenecker, 18, Franz Becker, 21, and Eva Winterling, 20. Johannes Schoenecker's second wife was Martha Winterling.

Katherina Pecher settled in Milwaukee in 1880, with help from her relatives in Milwaukee, the Schoeneckers. She emigrated from her hometown of Lesik (formerly Muehlburg) in Bohemia (now Czech Republic). Wenzel Pecher, her brother, and his family came to the U.S. in 1884. Photos of the family are available OnLine.

My ancestor Peter Kolb was living in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1880. His neighbors, John and Andreas (Andrew) Schoenecker (both listed below), recommended their cousin Katherine Pecher to keep the house for their friend Mr. Kolb, who had a young child and a sick wife. Ms. Pecher emigrated to the New World, and, unfortunately, Mrs. Catherine Kolb passed away in March, 1880. Andrew Schoenecker is listed as living at 593 N. 24th St. in 1913. His brother John was living at 296 24th St. Jean Hinz, my distant cousin and a genealogical researcher, provided this information on her Schoenecker ancestors.

Great-great-grandfather Peter Kolb then married Ms. Pecher within six months of his wife's death. Peter Kolb, as a single male with a young son, needed help keeping the house. In October, 1880, the marriage took place in Milwaukee. The Schoeneckers likely attended.

The Schoenecker family came from the same area of Europe as the Pecher family. Johannes Schoenecker, age 25, his wife Anna, age 24, and their son Wenzel, age 9, sailed from Bremen on the ship Adler (Eagle) arriving in Baltimore on July 30, 1855. Others on the ship included Vincenz Schoenecker, age 18, and Franz Becker, age 21, a possible relative of Anna Pecher (Becher).

The immigrant relatives Johannes and Anna (Becher) Schoenecker resided at 532 15th Street (9th ward) and are buried at Calvary Cemetery. Most branches of the family are buried at Calvary. The Wenzel Schoenecker family resided at 1218 Cherry Street. The Andreas Schoenecker family resided at 546 15th Street and 593 N. 24th Street. Andreas's first wife, Anna, died of pregnancy nephritis and is buried at Calvary Cemetery. Several of their children also died as infants, including Frank of cholera, unknown baby of premature birth, George of stillborn, and the last unknown baby of stillborn. The Herman Schoenecker family resided at 1405 Cherry Street, 1407 14th Street, 1372 Fond du Lac Ave., and 2311 Vine Street. The Joseph Schoenecker family resided at 2605 Bismark in Milwaukee and are buried at Holy Cross Cemetery.

Katherine Kolb passed away in her 90s in 1948. Her last residence was 2327 N. 37th St. in Milwaukee. This location is on 37th between North Ave. and Meineke Ave., 2 blocks west of Metcalfe Park and right next to Butterfly Park. The property is currently vacant land. It's a residential neighborhood, located one block away from the Lighthouse Christian Bookstore and the New Covenant Missionary Church.

Her previous address, in the 1930 City Directory, was 819 S. 37th Street. She was residing at this address with her daughter Annie Kolb. This location still has nice residences and is located between Pierce Street and National Avenue on the south side of the city. The Hank Aaron State Trail is 3 blocks north and the Hmong Chamber of Commerce is one block away from this location.

PECHER FAMILY IN SOUTHEASTERN WISCONSIN

Other Pecher family members in the U.S. lived in rural Ozaukee County and downtown Milwaukee at different points. Adolph, Andy, Katherine, Joe, and their parents came to the U.S. in 1882.

The 1910 U.S. Census for Milwaukee lists the Graser family as living in the 10th ward and includes: Joseph, 60; Anna, 59; Adolph, 31; Joseph, 24; Andreas, 22; Peter, 19. The 1930 U.S. Census for Milwaukee (District 290) lists Katherine Kolb (mother) living with her daughter Annie and her nephew Adolph Graser (age 57). Next door or in the same building was Lilly Kolb and her husband John Langer. Graser is listed as a brewer and Langer is listed as tool-and-die-maker. Adolph Graser (b: 1878) became a naturalized U.S. citizen on June 25, 1906 (a variant record shows he was naturalized Oct. 25, 1900). The witnesses to the naturalization were Michael Weber and Wolfgang Hackl (Milwaukee County Records, petition 11410, volume 10, p. 327).

The 1930 Census for Milwaukee (District 262) lists Joseph W. Graser and his wife Ottilia. Joseph is listed as a silversmith. The 1930 Census for Milwaukee lists Wenzel Pecher, age 76, living with daughters Lena, age 47, and Mary H., age 51. The Pecher family farm still sits in rural land on the outskirts of Cedarburg, Ozaukee County, Wisconsin. The land is still farmed by Raymond Pecher, the nephew of great-great-grandmother Katherine (Pecher) Kolb.

Cousins Raymond Pecher and Russell Kolb in 2003.

POSSIBLE FAMILY CONNECTION

George Becher born March 2, 1564 in Neudeck and married to Barbara (unknown) is a possible ancestor. There is also a Michael Becher born 1577 in Neudeck who married Christina Hauck.

SURNAME MEANINGS

The Pecher family was Roman Catholic. The surname Pecher is an occupational name for someone who prepared, sold, or used pitch, from an agent derivative of Middle High German pech, or 'pitch'.

The first carrier of the surname was likely a pecher by trade. This occupation had been in existence since the Middle Ages. Each pecher leased a couple of hundred trees from the forest owners. During summertime, the pechers lived in the forests to collect the resin from the trees. The resin was used to produce pitch. The occupation of pecher did not have a very high reputation since they spent the whole summer on their own in the forest. The pechers often appeared to be somewhat eccentric characters. Their faces assumed a black color from the resin they collected. However, the pechers were very popular with the children who played in the forests.

The surname Krause is from the Middle High German kruse or 'pitcher' or 'jug', a metonymic occupational name for a maker or seller of jugs or a nickname for a heavy drinker.

(Special note of thanks to distant cousins Jean Hinz and Raymond Pecher for their assistance in compiling the below information.)
