  • Notes 
    • BIRTH:
      Full date from Register of Baptisms for St. James RC Church, Baltimore, Maryland. On microfilm in Maryland Hall of Records, Annapolis, Maryland. Microfilm # MdHR M-1572.
      Consistent with age (7 years) in 1850 U.S. Census for Maryland, Baltimore, page 65B, line 34. State of birth given as Maryland. Enumerated as Benj. Gibmeyer, with parents Frederick and Elizabeth Gibmeyer. The different first name here is probably an error by the census taker.
      Consistent with age (17 years) in 1860 U.S. Census for Maryland, Baltimore, page 192, line 14. State of birth given as Maryland. Enumerated as Bernard Myer, with parents Frederick and Catherine Myer, but their surname was apparently misunderstood by the census taker.
      Roughly consistent with age (26 years) in 1870 U.S. Census for Maryland, Baltimore, page 244B, line 15. Place of birth given as Maryland, but both parents foreign-born. Enumerated as Bernard Gibmeyer, in a household containing the George Bends family, Josephine Schitte, and two others. Date of enumeration was 4 June 1870, a few days before the marriage of Bernard Gibmeyer and Josephine Schuette.
      Consistent with age (27 years) in 1870 marriage record.
      Year of birth would be 1844-1845, according to age (35 years) in 1880 U.S. Census for Maryland, Baltimore, page 81A, line 37. State of birth given as Maryland. Enumerated as Bernard Gibmeyer, married, along with his mother, Catherine Gibmeyer, widow, but not with his wife and family. It appears that Catherine Gibmeyer may have listed her married children to the census taker as being resident with her when they were not.
      Year of birth would be 1843-1844, according to age (36 years) in 1880 U.S. Census for Maryland, Baltimore, page 63B, line 18. State of birth given as Maryland. Enumerated as Bernard Gibmeyer, with wife Josephine and son Frederick.
      Roughly consistent with age (39 years, 9 months, 27 days) given in his 15 April 1882 death record in the parish register of St. Michael's RC Church, Baltimore. The calculation should have been 38 years, 9 months, and 27 days.

      FAMILY HISTORY SKETCH: The following biographical sketch was written by Agnes Simon Riesett from oral history that had come down in the family.
      "Bernard Gibmeyer was born in 1845. He married Josephine Schuette probably sometime before 1872. [June 7, 1870] In 1870 and 1871, Bernard was living in the family home at 383 Canton Ave. and owned a grocery store at 314 Canton Ave. However, in 1872, he left home and moved to 272 Bank St. which he would not have ordinarily done in those days unless he was married. We know that he was married by 1877 because both he and his wife Josephine are shown on the deed transferring ownership of the house to Catherine Gibmeyer. In 1878, they had a son whom they named Frederick John, asking John Frederick and Agnes to be his godparents. By 1880, Bernard, his wife, his young son and a serving girl (Mary Sammick) were living at 20 Patterson Park Ave. (This area is today. being restored and called "Butcher's Hill".) Bernard was now a butcher and had a stall in Point Market (later called Broadway Market). About this time, their second son William was born and about two years later, Bernard died and Josephine was forced to find a way to support herself. She gave Fred to his godparents to raise and, taking young William with her, she became a live-in housekeeper or cook."
