1870 Chicago - Filip, Philipp, Philippi, Philip
Hello. I'm hitting a wall. I'm trying to research Josef Filip (1819)/Magdalena (Čermáková)(1823). Both were born in Radnice, West Bohemia. I found a record indicating that they traveled to Chicago, via Bremen/Baltimore in April 22,1867 on the Bark Union. However the Passenger List has them listed as Phillipp (passengers 234-240). The family members are right and the ages are close. The 1880 Census has them (as Phillippi) living in Chicago, without the daughters (one was married -as Philip/Bartos- in 1873). I can't even find her actual marriage records. I can't find them in the 1870 census. I wish I could try and search the census based on addresses. I don't know where else to look (directories aren't much help). I've even tried to find churches, but a lot of them were built after the 1871 Chicago fire. Can anyone help? I'm running out of ideas.
