Post Posted: Mon Oct 15, 2018 4:35 pm      Post subject: Gess (Jess or Geß) in Jablonowo/Jabłonowo or Jabbernow
Reply with quote

I am researching the origins of a family from maybe Jablonowo/Jabłonowo or Jablkowo, possibly near Schokken (Skoki). The surname coming into America in 1853 is Gess. It may have been spelled Jess or german Geß prior. The father was Gottlieb Gess b. 7 Jul 1815 and came to America with his wife Augusta Myer or Meier and 3 children in 1853. The Hamburg emigration list for Gottlieb Gess and family shows the origination of the family what is spelled as "Jabbernow" (Prussia) but I have not found a village named Jabbernow so I am thinking Jablonowo? I have information on this family once they arrived in the USA but nothing prior to this.

Hello,

I think I found the index in Family Search for the birth of Gottlieb Jess:

https://www.familysearch.org/search/record/results?count=20&query=%2Bgivenname%3AGottlieb~%20%2Bsurname%3AGess~%20%2Bfilm_number%3A752861

This is the searchable index on Family Search for Schokken, Evangelical Church records. The digitized parish record exists, via Family Search, but it is locked. That means you have to go to a family research center near you to view it.

However, you can search the index for other Jess records.

Hope this helps,
Cynthia

I did a bit more research on the village and found the following:

Polish name: Jabłkowo
German Name (1815-1919): Jabkowo
German Name (1939-1945: Apfelhöhe

Jabkowo (today is Jabłkowo in Poland) is in the administrative district of Schokken (today is Skoki in Poland)

Here is the link to information about the village of Jabkowo from Meyers Gazatteer:
https://www.meyersgaz.org/place/10884060

Here is the link to the information about the administrative district of Schokken (which is about 8 miles from Jabkowo):
https://www.meyersgaz.org/place/20740012

And, here is a link to a list of abbreviations used in the Gazatteer:
https://www.familysearch.org/wiki/en/Abbreviation_Table_for_Meyers_Orts_und_Verkehrs_Lexikon_Des_Deutschen_Reichs

If you select the "Ecclesiastical" tab on the above pages, you will see the parish locations:
https://www.meyersgaz.org/place/10884060

If you select the "Map" tabs, you will see the map of the time period:

I hope this helps,
Cynthia

Thank you. I had seen this too a few months ago but not 100% it’s him, although likely.
