Krambo & Schäffer
  Families of Neubeschenowa
  of  Anneliese Tillmanns

Krambo & Schäffer


My father Matthias Schäffer, was born in Neubeschenowa.  I was there 2 times, 1970 and 1976.  In 1970, with my parents and grandparents, we visited a lot of people, including the Krambo family.  They had two children, a daughter and a son, Hans, both would be over 50 today and neither live in Neubeschenowa any longer.   There were many families with the name Schäffer in Neubeschenowa. My father died 15 years ago, so I couldn't ask his questions now.

Mathias Homann of Setschan, referred Anneliese to the DVHH site, he writes...

Anneliese's mother was born in Setschan and her Dad "SCHÄFFER" came from Neubeschenowa .  She was in Neubeschenowa for two times:
The first time with her grandparents and parents and the second time she rode drove alone on the train.  She said: "In this train where all Nations and one German - me !!!! But we had a great fun and we eat together in this train ...."

Funk & Bach


My Mother Helen Scheibling was born in 1924, Neubeschenowa, Banat.   She is still alive and living in California, USA.   Her parents were Joeseph Scheibling, her mothers last name was Heindric.  My Mom has told me many stories of her early years and her escaped to Chicago around 1938.

My maternal great grand parents were Balthasar & Magdalena Heinrich.  We are also related to some Funk and Bach families and probably a lot more.  Also have a step family from Yugoslavia.

Nikolaus Thess (Thiser, Thesz, This) was the 2nd of 9 children.  Nikolaus married and died in Nakodorf/Nakovo/Seilesch.  His parents were Josef Thiser and Katharina Fritz.  So I'm hoping to go back further with them.  They may have stayed/died in Neubeschenowa as well as other family members.  This info from Hans Grimm.  I want to get the Familienbuch Neubeschenowa.

Their passenger records list residence as Obad (I have the document)

When I began research on my great grandfather, Peter Nischbach, I used the original ship manifest of his wife and four children to guide my search. His wife, Marianna, who came after he did, listed their residence as Obad, Hungary. Unfortunately, I made the wrong assumption in believing that because the family resided in Obad when they emigrated, that they were born there as well. 

It was not until several years later, after reviewing the DU Kalenders (38.158), that I discovered that my great grandfather, Peter Nischbach, originated from Neubeschenowa, and that his deceased wife, Marianna, originated from Johannisfeld.

[all Children born in Neubeschenowa Haus Nr. 443]

I recently finally found where my ancestors, the REITERs and DITTRICHs were from. We have been looking for decades. Who would have thought that they were hiding in the Banat!!!

My great-grandfather, Mathias REITER came from Neubeschenowa through Fiume in October, 1904. Neubeschenowa was also known as Ujbesenyö and is now known as Dudestii Noi. Ujbesenyö was the home town he listed on the ships record.  Mathias was born in 1886, probably in Neubeschenowa. I do not know his parents' names but he had several brothers: William, Peter and Nickolas and a sister, Katherine, all who came to Chicago through New York between 1900 and 1915.

My great-great grandparents Nickolaus and Theresia (born FREESE) DITTRICH and their children, Nick, Elisabeth, Catherine and John all came from Heideschütz through Fiume in 1905. Heideschütz was also know as Istvanvolgy and is now known as Hajducica. Istvanvolgy was the home town they listed on their ships records. Nickolaus was born in 1859 and Theresia in 1864. They were probably married in Heideschütz around 1884. The children were born between 1884 and 1899. All came to Chicago through New York at various times during 1905.

My next step is to somehow find their church records in these towns. Any light that anyone could shed on these families will be greatly appreciated.

Jacob Gumber and Magdalena Gumber geb. Baldesweiler

The birth and death information of Jacob and Magdalena remains a mystery.  I do know they lived in Neubeschenowa.  Below is the only information I have regarding their daughters.  If they had other children, I am unaware of it.

If Jacob and Magdalena were still living in 1945, I would think they were too old to be sent to the coal mines.  I would like to know the demise of any of these families. 

Jacob and Magdalena's Children:

Magdalena Gumber - b. 29 mar 1885 in Neubeschenowa and immigrated to America in 1905.  She died in Davenport, Iowa in 1969.

Anna Gumber - b. 15 May 1889 in Neubeschenowa and immigrated to America in 1907.  Married in NY City 11 May 1908 to Josef Schwan (Schwann) b. 23 Nov 1884.  Anna died in 1968 in Davenport Iowa.

Maria Gumber - b. 1885, traveling with Magdalena to US, shown as her sister. 


Anna's husband:
Josef Schwan (Schwann)
b. 23 Nov 1884 in Neubeschenowa and immigrated to America in 1907, he was joining his father in NY.  He died of drowning in the Mississippi river, April of 1915 in Davenport Iowa.  The newpaper article stated, he had a sister Catherine Istvan in Budapest. Josef's father was also named Josef, b. about 1851, mother unknown.  In 1915, when he died, his father was in Whitter California.  Rumor has it he went back and was hanged for bragging!

Name: Joseph Schwan
Death Date: 25 Apr 1915
Page #: 677
Birth Date: 25 Nov 1884
Cemetery: Fairmount
Town: Dav.
Level Info: Tombstone Records, Scott Co. Iowa




According to relatives, Schwann was a native of Hungary, born  23 Sep 1884.  He came to America & lived in NY City for two years, being married there.  Six years before his death, he moved to Davenport & took a position with the Independent Brewing Co., being a brewer by trade.  He worked there until his death. 

He leaves his wife, Mrs. Annie Schwann and two little children, Rudolph and Irma, who are five and three years old.  He also has a sister Magdalena Jessen, in Davenport, and his father, who lives in California. He also leaves a sister in Budapest, Hungary.

The funeral of Joe Schwann will be held from the H. Runge undertaking parlors at 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon under the auspices of Davenport aerie. No. 235, F.O.E. of which he was a member.  Burial will be in the Fairmount Cemetery, Johannes Kreeger will officiate.

My mother, Magdalena Schandor Reiter was born in NeuBeschenowa on August 26, 1925.  My grandparents, her mother and father, were Magdalena and Peter Schandor - later changed to Sandor.  Johanna also has a sister in Germany. 

My Mom's house number was 251 and the Schaeffer's live at 381.

I was in NeuBeschenowa August 2004 and everything is just falling apart, including some of the head stones in the cemetery.  I have a film taken in the village. 

The address # 243 is correct in that it is the house of Josef and Katharina Schaffer, only they are the parents of the present Josef Schaeffer, who is my second cousin.  The family that lives there now has daughter who lives in Germany, Johanna has a sister there and in Romania they have a son from his first marriage who now has two daughters that live with there grandfather in NeuBeschenowa.  I don't know why I have the #381 address but that is where I have been writing and that is the address their daughter Hanni gave me.

The Weldi house and the Kiefer house are also my family members homes.  The Kiefer family is my Great Grand Parents and the Weldi family are related to Johanna Schaffer and Barbara Weldi (whose name is on the house) is my Grandmother Magdalena Kiefer Schandor sister (who married a man names Weldi ) I have the family tree from my mother's side of the family: the Schaffer's, Kiefer's etc. 

I was browsing through the addresses and # 373 is Schandor Markus - not Max  - he was my grandfather's brother and everyone called him Marxi for short. 

My Mom knows Mr. Grimm and Mr. Wanko since she was the one from NeuBeschenowa.  I know about almost all the people from NeuBeschenowa since my Mom talks about them.  My Dad was also from Darowa, Romania.  The family tree from there is more extensive, but I have many more photos from NeuBeschenowa since they all seem to have had the money for portraits.

My Mom and her sister now that are left from Mom's immediate family.

I met my husband of 31 years in Romania.  He is from Darowa the same as my Dad was.  We were married there also.  What a wedding day that was, all day and all night until the next morning when the band played us home.  It was very tiring but an experience none the less. 

I pretty much know all the family stats from both Darowa and NeuBeschenowa, because my Uncle has written two books on our family tree and went as far back as 1500's for Darowa, and my great Aunt (my grandmothers sister) who has passed away and was also born in NeuBeschenowa, had this tree made. 


Note: Concerning the Krausz family in Neubeschenowa: I know at least one family with the above spelling. One of my class mates in primary school was Donate Krausz. In fact I shared for a few years the same school bench with her. As far as I know,  the whole family now lives in Germany. If you need more info, please let me know. - Erwin Deininger

Krambo side of the family....
According to the book Neubeschenowa by Anton Petri, the Krambo families came to Neubeschenowa  from Montbronn, Saargemund, Lothringen in 1745.  My grandfather was Johann Krambo, b. 1872 - d. 1937.   He married my grandmother, Barbara Kannengesser, b. 1875 - d. 1948 (?). They had 2 children, my father Johann (John) b. 1896 - d. 1968, and a daughter Barbara b. 1898 - d. unknown.  They came to the U.S. twice.  First in 1907, returning to Neubeschenowa in1911.  The second trip to the U.S. was in 1914 and settled in Chicago, Illinois.  My father, John married in 1917 to my mother Eva Ebner, b. 1900 - d. 1985.  They had 3 sons, John Charles (1919-1981), Victor Peter (1921-2002) and me, William John (n. 1929).  I hope to trace my family tree back to before my grandfather and find what relationship I might have with the other listed Krambo families.   

Ebner side of the family....

Peter Ebner was my grandfather.   His first marriage produced 3 children, Mary, Anna, and Mathias, who came to the U.S. and settled in the Bismark, North Dakota area.  His second marriage was to my Grandmother Elizabeth Pfeifer (b. 1867 - d. 1945)  Peter and Elizabeth had 4 children, John b. 1888 -d?, Peter b.-1891 d-?, Helen b. 1894 - d. 1937, and my mother Eva b. 1900 - d. 1985.  Peter Ebner my  Grandfather died in Neubeschenowa, a few years after my mother was born.  Elizabeth came to the US with her 4 children and settled in Chicago in 1908.
