Reformed LDS Temple of King Jesus

Mormon Temple in Oakland, California

r/evilbuildings - Mormon Temple in Oakland, California

While living in the shadow of the LDS Temple in Oakland, I had a dream about a fire. My dream came true, thus I am a prophet after Samuel the Nazarite. I am authoring a book that concludes Jesus declared he was going to build a new temple on the Mount of Olives that would rival the Herodian temple. This is the motive for his arrest and execution. John the Baptist and his priestly father designdthis temple in all aspects. It was blessed by the priesthood who served in the Holy of Holies. When the elder of the LDS church ADOPTED the statue off Christus – they brought my bloodline into the core of the church – to indicate the LDS church – WAS A CHRISTIAN CHURCH! Why would there be any doubt? let me count the ways. I conclude…..

“All’s well, that ends well!”

There are several profound indications that I have been chosen to…..REFORM THE LDS. I met two sisters in the produce section of Wal-Mart and I told Sister Higgens the secret of what Jesus wrote in the dust. I suggested she read what rabbis wrote about The Sotah.

  1. My kin, Senator Thomas Hart Benton did not help build their Zionist temple in Missouri. He may have secretly led the opposition – because he was a Freemason? I told the three LDS Sister the Shekinah wants to dwell in the new Eurgene Temple. The Shekinah has everything to do with the true Zion.

I believe this blog was examined to see if…………? I believe the darkness around me – wato s shocking. Below is the Mariage certificate my nephew came to own. He did not tell me his mother, was dead. When I found out, he asked if i wanted anything. I asked for my painting he never delivered. He hates me because I pointed out his lies. I forgot about this certificate. Another LDS Sister suggested my deceased kin – want to be SAVED – via their genealogies. I was not told my father was dead, and found out three years later when I talked to a cousin doing the Presco family tree. I was not told my mother was dying. Demons have been trying to destroy My Family Tree. WHY? I am being – ELECTED! I believe the LDS is the REPSITORY for ‘Royal Rosamond Press’.

Sister Higgens stood in my living room and announced we are in the End of Days. The day of the fire I drove to the top of the road that begins seventy yards past the entrance to the temple and saw the dark ceiling of smoke that almost block out the sun.

Stop judging me. I was born in Oakland during a star shower. We might pass through the tail of a comet this weekend. You need to examine my revelations – with real scholarship. I am already in the door. You can say the life-size statue of Christus overlooking my Stuttmeister ancestors – is a Trojan Horse?

Latter-day Saints Join Efforts after Oakland Fire (

On Sunday, October 20, Bishop Samuel Richard Wickel, Jr., of the Oakland Third Ward, in the Oakland California Stake, had finished Church meetings and was visiting with members when word came that parts of the city were burning. He sent everyone home.

“We could see the fire coming our way. It was about 2:00 p. m. The fire fighters kept fighting the fire. By 4:00 p. m. we had to leave. We could see a wall of flames shooting thirty to forty feet in the air.”

Sister Margaret Wickel said, “It was so dark in our house from the intense smoke that we had to use flashlights to find the sleeping bags and to read our list of phone numbers.”

“We moved a block away,” Bishop Wickel continued, “and stood and watched our homes. The heat was so bad and the air was so bad that we could hardly breathe. We could see the wall of flame coming to our house, and my wife said, ‘Let’s leave. I can’t stand to see our home go.’”

Evangelical Lutheran Church of St. Matthew (New York City) – Wikipedia

The recent laudable movement within the Church to discard a traditional parochialism for a more universal appeal is very much in evidence. Pronouncements and travels of Church leaders, the establishment of seminary and institute programs outside of North America and the expanded use of the mass media in the missionary effort all dramatize the new thrust. Undoubtedly, this worldwide emphasis has also been one of the stimuli behind the interest in exploring the history of Mormonism in foreign lands. An additional motive is that former missionaries sometimes take this route to express their affection for the areas and people of their service. The book by Gilbert Scharffs, Mormonism in Germany: A History of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Germany falls into this category, attempting, in the author’s words, “. . . to relate the dramatic, untold story of the growth and survival of the Church . . . in Germany. . . .” Such studies, if well done, should be welcomed by the Church membership, not only as a reflection of the vigor of the Church, but for their potential contribution toward a greater mutual understanding and brotherhood among Church members the world over.

The Evangelical Lutheran Church of St. Matthew is the oldest Lutheran congregation in North America. The congregation is a member of the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod. Since 2006, the congregation has been located at the Cornerstone Center, 178 Bennett Avenue in ManhattanNew York City. The congregation has been known by different names, only acquiring the name St. Matthew in 1822 and using it exclusively since 1838.[3][2][4]

Trinity Church – Lutheran (1729-1776), Broadway, New York City

The congregation was founded in 1643 by Dutch Lutherans in New Amsterdam but the church was not chartered until December 6, 1664, when the new governor, Richard Nicolls, issued a charter after the British had taken control of the colony in April 1664.[2]

Judging The Sotah

Posted on August 12, 2019 by Royal Rosamond Press

Jesus said;

“Judge not, lest thee be judged!”

This has everything to do with the judging of the woman accused of adultery that I ALONE solved the riddle of. I announced that I know the answer surrounded by men and women carrying guns. One said;

“No one knows the answer!”

“I do!” says I.

Stuttmeister Married at Famous Lutheran Church

Posted on August 14, 2021 by Royal Rosamond Press

Here is the marriage certificate of Rudolph Stuttmeister who lost his mother at birth. The Stuttmeisters are San Francisco Pioneers. When I become Governor of the Great Bohemian State of California, I will pass a law making it illegal for anyone to sell, or attempt to sell, anyone’s family tree to outsiders, especially if they are hostile towards Heirs of said tree. My late sister, Victoria Presco, had this on her wall. Where is it?

My Broderick cousin who lives in Berlin has been helping me compile some of our family history that my natal family knew very little about, especially Christine Rosamond Benton. Therefor, our history could not be sold to outsiders. I am not alone. Others are appalled at what they have read. The Carmel Art Feeding Frenzy resembles the denuding of our forests that concerned Robert Lewis Stevenson, a Carmel Pioneer.

I will be sending out a three page synopsis of my story that will begin with me having my mother call up Sydney Morris to find out what was going on. Morris told Rosemary he and Stacey Pierrot had emptied her daughters home of everything but a large box of family photographs.

“Do you want them?” Morris asked.

“Of course….I want them!” answered the mother of a world famous woman artist, who is demonized…

Predicting The Oakland Fire

Posted on December 25, 2015 by Royal Rosamond Press


Consider this my Christmas Card. Life is short. I will ignore all who disrespect me, and, those who show me no respect.

Joel 2:28
“And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions.

A week before the Oakland Fire I had a dream about it. I saw smoke and helicopters. I lived at 2816 London Rd below the Mormon Temple. It was a heavily wood canyon with no exit. I asked my landlord if I could clear some of the brush around his house, and remove pine needles he asked why. I told him about my dream.

The morning of October 20, 1991, Al called me up and said;

“Greg! You’re dreams on T.V. Turn on the news!”

The fire was two miles away when Al left to do errands. I asked him if hee wanted me to take his dog and family photos with me if the fire got near. He scoffed, let go a laugh.

“The fire won’t come anywhere near!”

In the dream, Al and I have manned hoses and are watering the brush around the house. Our neighbor calls and asked if I saw the flames come into our canyon.

“No! I just saw the smoke.”

Twenty minutes later, three cars were parked in her driveway loaded with her friend’s possessions. There was antique furniture tied on the roof. This was scary. These people’s homes were in flames they fleeing for safety based upon a Prophets Dream.

Suddenly, Al’s car comes barreling down the road. He jumps out and orders me to man a hose on one side of the house, while he mans another. I am in my dream. When the refuges saw that, they pulled out. We could get trapped down here. But, the flames stopped a quarter-mile away when the strong wind died down. I drove to the top of the hill and saw a huge column of smoke crossing the bay. I was in hell.

I am done trying to defended myself from family and friends who do not own the abilities I own, and have not died, and come back like Jesus who was seen by many after his resurrection. For forty days he walked around saying hello to people. I know how he felt.

Jon ‘The Nazarite’


The Oakland firestorm of 1991 was a large suburban wildland-urban interface conflagration that occurred on the hillsides of northern Oakland, California, and southeastern Berkeley on October 20, 1991. The fire has also been called the Oakland hills firestorm or the East Bay Hills Fire. The fire ultimately killed 25 people and injured 150 others. The 1,520 acres (620 ha) destroyed, included 2,843 single-family dwellings and 437 apartment and condominium units. The economic loss has been estimated at $1.5 billion.[1]

The most important factor was the rapid spread of the wind-driven fire. Before most of the firefighting resources could be brought to the scene, the fire had established a large perimeter. At the fire’s peak, it destroyed one house every 11 seconds. By the first hour, the fire had destroyed nearly 790 structures. In addition to the winds and the heat, an important factor in the rapid spread of the fire was that it started in an area that was at an interface between developed and undeveloped land. Many of the first dwellings to burn were surrounded by thick, dry vegetation. In addition, the nearby undeveloped land had even more dry brush.

The same conditions contributed to a major conflagration nearby in the 1923 Berkeley fire and a more limited conflagration in the same area on September 22, 1970, again under similar conditions. A smaller fire also started in Wildcat Canyon on December 10, 1980.[6]

Born Under Falling Stars

Posted on March 5, 2019 by Royal Rosamond Press

I was born under a sign in the heavens. When I died, I saw God, raised my hand, and spoke these words…….

“I am!”

I was destined for the church. This message did not get to me due to my abusive parents. It came directly from God – twice! The First Messenger was my DNA! My ancestors spoke to me in foreign tongues at the moment of my death. I was their Last Hope. God hears their prayers, and restored my life.

After taking a DNA test for Ancestry.Com I found a Priestly Linage that descends from the Rosenberg and Schwarzenberg family to William and John Wilson. We find Lord Zinzendorf in our family tree – that came to America and founded Churches! William Wilson is a marvel of the Church of England, that time forgot.  I am going to find time to do a portrait of John Wilson and Nikolaus Zinzandorf. Then there is Gottschalk Rosemondt and the Order of Saint Francis.

John Presco

“William Wilson was Chaplain to the Archbishop of Canterbury, Prebendary of Rochester, Rector of Cliffe, near Rochester, etc. and for 32 years, Prebendary of St. George’s Chapel at Windsor where he was buried.”

“He was educated at Merton College, Oxford which he left in 1575 on his acceptance of a living from the Earl of Pembroke. . .He became Prebendary of Saint Paul’s and Rochester Cathedrals, and held the rectory of Cliffe, Kent. In 1584 he became a Canon of Windsor in place of Dr. William Wickham.”

“He was a Prebendary of St. Paul’s and Rochester Cahtedral, and also rector of Cliffe, Kent. He was chaplain of Archbishop Grindall of Canterbury, and was made Canon of Windsor in 1584. He married Isabel, daughter of John and Elizabeth Woodhall of Walden, Essex, a niece of Bishop Grindall. He died in 1615, and was buried next his father at Windsor.”

“Rev. William Wilson, D.D., of Merton College, Oxford, was also a prebendary of st. Paul’s and Rochester cathedrals, and held the rectory of cliffe, in the county of Kent. In 1584 he became canon of Windsor in place of dr. Will. Wickham promoted to the see of Lincoln, being about that time chaplain to Edmund (Grindall), Archbishop of Canterbury. He married Isabel Woodhall, daughter of John and Elizabeth Woodhall of Walden in Essex, and niece of Archbishop Grindall. He was buried in St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, near the body of his father, William Wilson, late of Wellsbourne, in Lincolnshire, Gent.”,

Born Under a Shower of Stars

Posted on August 11, 2013by Royal Rosamond Press


I was born October 8, 1946 two minutes after the sun set. An amazing star-shower was suddenly visible. The nurses in the maternity ward bid my mother to come to the window and look, but, was too spent having just delivered me.

Rosemary said she had a vision while she was giving birth to me, she telling herself she must not forget it. She forgot.

Rosemary named me after John the Baptist because she believed I was born on the Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur. I was born three days after Yom Kippur.

When my Astrologer began her five hour (recorded) reading of my chart, she began
with these words;

“Jon, I have never seen a chart like yours, never knew it was possible. It
begins where all charts in theory begin, on the exact cusp of Pisces and Aries..
For this reason I had to move up the time of your birth ten minutes, or in
theory, you were not born. As it is now, you barely escaped becoming a veritable
prisoner in this lifetime, that is, all the information you came here to share.”

I believe I was born to die, and when I did, my clock was readjusted so my information could be set free. My astrologer said I am of the great Scorpion Scholars of the Biblical Wilderness who sting themselves in order to induce a near-death experience and behold the Creator, if only for a little while.

Freedom On Liberty Street

Posted on September 20, 2017 by Royal Rosamond Press

My Stuttmeister ancestors came to New York and lived on Liberty Street where the Trade Towers once stood. I now suspect they were Ministers. They came to Chili, also.  Thirteen year old Victor Rudolph Stuttmeister applied for a passport when he was thirteen years of age. He had a high forehead, an aquiline nose, a large mouth, a sharp chin, brown hair, and blue eyes. Rudolph had six children and was a New York City Physician. Phillip, Mary, and Lizzie are born in New York City. Bertha is the first child to be married in California. This family were pioneers in San Francisco, Belmont, and Lagunitas in Marine County where Beryl and Leonard Buck moved after living in Oakland for many years.

1888: From the Daily Alta, an article on the marriage of Dr. William O.
Stuttmeister and Augusta D. Janke.
Daily Alta California, Volume 42, Number 14175, 24 June 1888
One of the most enjoyable weddings of the past week took place at
Belmont, Wednesday morning last, the contracting parties being Miss
Augusta Janke, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. August Janke of Belmont,
and Dr. Wm. Stuttmeister of San Francisco. The house was
handsomely decorated with a rich profusion of ferns and flowers, and
at the appointed hour was filled with the relatives and intimate friends
of the contracting parties. At 11 o’clock the wedding march was played
and the bridal party entered the parlor. The bride was attended by Miss
Alice Stuttmeister, a sister of the groom, and Miss Minnie Janke, a
sister of the bride, as bridesmaids, and Dr. Muldownado and Wm.
Janke, a cousin of the bride, were groomsmen. The Rev. A. L. Brewer
of San Mateo performed the beautiful and impressive ceremony under
an arch composed of flowers and greens very prettily arranged, after
which the guests pressed forward and offered their congratulations.
The bride was attired in a very pretty and becoming costume of the
crushed strawberry shade, and wore a corsage bouquet of orange
blossoms. She carried a handsome bouquet of white flowers. After the
guests had paid their compliments the bride and groom led the way to
the dining-room, where the wedding dinner was served and the health
of the newly married pair was pledged. The feast over, the guests
joined in the dance, and the hours sped right merrily, interspersed with
music singing and recitations, until the bride and groom took their
departure amid a shower of rice and good wishes. Many beautiful
presents were received. Dr. and Mrs. Stuttmeister left Thursday
morning for Santa Cruz and Monterey, where they will spend the
honeymoon. On their return they will make their home in Belmont.

Carl and Dorothea Janke
By: John Edmonds

Carl August Janke was a native of Hamburg, Germany, as was Dorothea; they left Germany in late 1848 and sailed to San Francisco arriving in 1860 following a brief trip to the gold country. They spent little time in San Francisco, finding the climate more to their liking in Belmont, San Mateo County.
Carl built the well known Belmont Picnic Grounds in the vicinity of today’s Twin Pines Park. The grounds became well known in San Francisco and when the railroad became well established in the mid 1860s the well intentioned and sometimes the not so well intentioned citizens of the great city took the train to Belmont. Good citizens of San Mateo County also enjoyed the good imported German beer and the dancing to the German band.
One of the problems for the San Francisco and San Jose Railroad that serviced Belmont and the San Mateo County Peninsula was that the trip back to the city often resulted in a great number of broken windows. The railroad solved that problem by increasing the toll for the trip to Belmont to cover the cost of replacing the windows. Thus everybody had to pay for the misdeeds a few.
On one occasion one of the less than gentlemanly males from San Francisco, thinking himself a playboy, took affection to a teen age young lady from Belmont. After a dance or two he took her for a walk in the nearby field and raped her.

The Belmont Picnic Grounds

The young lady reported the incident to her mother who, in turn, reported it to the Sheriff’s Office. The rapist, of course, disappeared in the crowed but the Deputy along with others took the young lady, one to the front of the train and the other to the back of the train and they worked their way toward each other until they located the suspect who was arrested and taken to the Jail in Redwood City.
A trial was held in the courtroom in Redwood City and during the process of that trial the suspect rose and walked forward to testify. The father of the victim rose and fired two shots into the suspect killing him instantly. The newspapers were blatant about the suspect got what he deserved and the father pleaded he went crazy after the rape. Several people testified to that fact. The father, having regained his sanity while waiting for his day in court, walked out of court a free man. This seems to fully agree with the newspapers, it’s nice to see justice served.
This is the only murder in a San Mateo County courtroom.

American sailors were no strangers to Valparaiso’s harbor, either.  One monument at the Dissidents Cemetery honors a battle of the far-flung War of 1812, America’s “Second War of Independence.”  On March 24, 1814, the frigate USS Essex, under command of Admiral David Porter, went into battle against the British vessels HMS Phoebe and HMS Cherub just offshore. Porter lost the battle and 58 American sailors died.  (One sailor aboard the Essex was the future Civil War admiral David Farragut, famous for later coining the phrase, “Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!” during the siege of Mobile, Alabama, in 1864.)
Valparaiso also holds a minor spot in American history and literature: Writer Herman Melville, whose seafaring days in the South Pacific took him here, opens his anti-slavery novel “Benito Cereno” off the Chilean coast.

Cementerio Disidentes (The Cemetery of Dissidents) is the final resting place for hundreds of European and North American Protestants, freethinkers, and other non-Catholics who died in this “skinny country,” and their descendents, who still call Chile home.
Today, we don’t tend to think of Latin America as an immigration hub. But in the 1800s, Chile, Argentina and Brazil attracted many new settlers from abroad, including quite a few whose native tongue wasn’t Spanish or Portuguese. Argentina and Chile, in fact, are mostly immigrant nations.

Liberty Street is a street in New York City that stretches east-west from the middle of Lower Manhattan almost to the East River. It borders such sites as One Chase Manhattan Plaza, the Federal Reserve Bank of New YorkOne Liberty PlazaLiberty Plaza Park, the World Trade Center site, the World Financial Center, Gateway Plaza, Liberty Park, and the North Cove marina. A FDNY Firehouse, Engine Co. # 10 and Ladder Co. # 10, is located at 124 Liberty Street, directly across from Ground Zero.[1]


Before the American Revolution, Liberty Street was known as Crown Street, but afterwards the name was changed. The present Liberty Street and the present Maiden Lane between Liberty and Pearl Streets. The name was changed to Liberty Street in 1793, with the part east of the junction being added to Maiden Lane.[2]

Central Railroad of New Jersey’s Liberty Street Ferry Terminal in New York City, ca. 1900

Between the 1860s and the 1960s the Central Railroad of New Jersey‘s main ferry ran from the foot of the street on the Hudson River to Communipaw Terminal in Jersey City.

In the late 1960s, all buildings that ran along the north side of the street from Church Street to West Street were demolished to make way for the World Trade Center.

The western portion of the street was extensively damaged by the September 11 attacks. This section of the road, adjacent to the South Tower of the World Trade Center, was crushed by debris and blanketed with dust and smoke when the building collapsed at 9:59 A.M. Rebuilding efforts continue near the World Trade Center site.

The Deutsche Bank Building, located at 130 Liberty Street, sustained heavy damage that morning and was later demolished. Other buildings on Liberty Street were also ravaged by the events. The Burger King on the corner was used as a temporary NYPD headquarters in the days following the attacks.

Tesla’s Liberty Street Laboratory

Martin Hill Ortiz    6:10 AM    4 comments

In 1887, Nikola Tesla rented his first laboratory. This is described in Carlson’s biography:

Tesla’s first laboratory was located in New York’s financial district. The laboratory was at 89 Liberty Street, just around the corner from the offices of Mutual Union at 120 Broadway. On the ground floor was the Globe Stationery & Printing Company, and Tesla occupied a room upstairs. The lab was furnished with only a workbench, a stove, and a dynamo manufactured by Edward Weston.

From: Carlson, W. Bernard. Tesla: Inventor of the Electrical Age (p. 81). Princeton University Press.

This was in the middle of the north side of Liberty Street between Broadway and Church. (The street is named Church north of Liberty, and Trinity to the south). Across the street from 89 Liberty, Temple Street ran two blocks south to Trinity Church. With Tesla’s obsession with the number three and with his father a priest, perhaps Trinity, Church and Temple were significant to him. The building with his laboratory is highlighted below in orange in an 1891 Atlas map.

From: Plate 2. Atlas of the City of New York, Manhattan Island. G.W. Bromley and Co., Philadelphia, 1891.

His stay here continued through the time when he invented the A/C generator and motor, although much of the refinement of these inventions were done in Pittsburgh. He moved to his Grand Street laboratory in August of 1889.

Globe Stationery continued at this address from 1876 until 1897 when it moved to 25 John Street. (Modern Stationer and Book-Seller, April 25, 1921. page 44, Google Books).

The Singer Building was constructed on this site. When it was completed in 1908, it was briefly the tallest building in the world. It was torn down in 1968, at the time the tallest building ever demolished. It was replaced by 1 Liberty Center. The site of Tesla’s laboratory is one-half block east of the southeastern corner of what would become the grounds of the World Trade Center.

From: Plate 2. Atlas of the City of New York, Manhattan Island. G.W. Bromley and Co., Philadelphia, 1911. This map clearly shows 89 Liberty Street as part of the southwest corner of the Singer Building.

The Singer Building. Photo from Wikipedia. Tesla’s laboratory at 89 Liberty Street was situated at what became the southwestern corner (leftmost in the above picture).

Although Paul Schäfer was the founder of Colonia Dignidad, an isolated settlement in Chile 400 kilometers south of Santiago, he wasn’t the only one who made its creation possible. Established in 1961 by German emigrants with strong Nazi ties, the enclave, which became known for its widespread cases of torture and child abuse, had several supporters in Germany and Chile.

In his book “Colonia Dignidad” (1998), the journalist Gero Gemballa wrote that the media’s portrayal of the settlement remained surprisingly factual – practically no exaggerations or creepy legends were added to the descriptions.

However the formation of non-Roman Catholic churches was not permitted until 1925, after which Lutheran congregations organized an association that later became the IEHLC. In the 1960s the church began missionary work in Spanish. The church underwent schism during the Pinochet regime, resulting in the formation of a separate Lutheran Church in Chile (Iglesia Luterana en Chile). Both churches are part of the LWF and have formed the Lutheran Church Council in Chile with a goal of unification in 2014.

William Olin Stuttmeister was born in 1866, and I assumed it was from
Charlottenburg, Germany. However this is only a suposition, as his
death certificate does not indicate he emigrated from Germany. He
had a brother, and four sisters. One sister was my grandmother,
Alice L. Stuttmeister Broderick. Her sister, Bertha, married a
Meyer. They all lived in
Oakland, California, USA. Dr. William Olin Stuttmeister, I believe
second eldest, became a dentist and practiced in Redwood City,
Calif., but
lived in San Francisco, California. He had a quarrel with the
sisters and
they never reconciled. Thus the lack of any substantial family

Through childhood conversations with my maternal grandmother – she
that the two other sisters, names unknown, emigrated to South Africa
on married a man who had an osterich farm(feathers fashionable at
time) The other married a man with either a gold or diamond mine.
diamond, because prior to WW1 they came to visit the family, and they
brought my grandmother’s wedding ring, a very large yellow diamond.
of course the war came, and no one ever heard from them again, or
they did, but I was not privy to this adult knowlege – thus they are
I suppose forever. I thought just perhaps some of this history may
ring a
‘bell’ with someone out there.

Their father was a medical doctor in Berlin, Brandenburg – Dr.
Stuttmeister, but I have absolutely no information on him. My half
claims both parents died young, and left one of the sisters, Berthe,
raise the other children – my grandmother, Alice, only 10 years old.

However, none of this seems quite accurate. I remember this paternal
grandmother Alice spoke broken English which indicats to me they
and she was not born in the US, but all death certificates seem to
they were born in the US, but I think there is a mistake here. It
very confusing delving after the truth when this family evidently
wanted to
hide their past and confuse us all.

To Dave Herring, and Listers,

Thank you very much for the information on Herman Stuttmeister. It
interesting that my information differed a little from what you sent
me, as
along with Herman Stuttmeister there was a HEDWIGA, age 27 from
Sipiory, which I think is the incorrect spelling of the town, and if
can correct this I would appreciate it.

I thought that Lemberg was in Switzerland, but there is a Lemberg in
Germany I believe.

Would anyone know where it is in proximation to the suburb of
Charlottenburg which is now incorporated in the city of Berlin?

Quite right, they came as tourists. I wonder what attracted Germans
America at this time? And did they return to Germany? If so, is
there a
way of checking?

Dear N.Y. Listers, John Dornheim very kindly emailed this
on the ‘Prussia’ list, but I want to write to the Church concerning
their marriage records, and if I can obtain a marriage certificate,
1844. I discovered that F.W. Rudolph Stuttmeister married Mathilde
Oltman in this church. The church was formerely known as ‘The German
Lutheran Church’ as so many of the German immigrants attended this
church. Is there some knowlegeable person who could give me a full
address, zip code and all? >There is no Lutheran church in any of
five boroughs of NYC that goes >by “Evangelical Lutheran Church” of
which I am aware. The word >Evangelical is an adjective which many
Lutheran congregations include in >their name. It means Gospel-
centered. >Organized in the mid 1660’s St. Matthew is the oldest
(perhaps second >oldest) Lutheran church in NYC. It is in the
uppermost part of Manhattan >near 207th St. > >John Dornheim I did
write to one church which I found in a N.Y. telephone book, but I
think that it is not the old church. ALSO, I would like to know what
medical schools were available in New York in the middle 1800. I do
not know whether Dr. W. F. Stuttmeister became a doctor in New York,
or in Berlin, Germany. He was twenty-eight years when he married, so
could have studied medicine in New York. Does anyone know how I
go about unearthing this bit???? Many thanks to those IN THE KNOW!

Is there any way, other than asking someone, I can find out whether
there were city directories in the middle 1800’s? Looking to see
my great grandfather came from Berlin to New York, and how long he
stayed. His name was W.F. Rudolph Stuttmeister, may have had
the ‘von’ in front, and may have had Dr. attached too, which brings
me to the question, what medical schools were in Manhattan or nearby
in the middle 1800’s. I know he was married in 1844 in Manhattan.
