BENDER

Julie Azzaro asked 3 years ago

Jacob Bender, b.ca. 1810,  immigrated to the U.S. possibly around 1843-1846.  He married Maria Anna Elizabetha Muller, b. ca. 1817, in Louisiville, Kentucky, USA, on 30 August 1847, who had recently immigrated.  Their first child was born in Louisville, KY in 1849.  By 1850 they were living in New Orleans, Louisiana, U.S.A.  He listed his place of birth as “Hungary” in the 1850 U.S. Census, and she listed her place of birth as “Prussia.”  I would like to find their actual places of birth, and family connections who were in the United States before their arrival, as well as whether Jacob had been married or had other children in Hungary/Germany before his emigration.

I am married to a Bender. In searching Family Genealogy, I discovered their original name was Bendaravicius or Bendaravicza . It was changed to Bender when the father that immigrated to US filed for citizenship. The family was from Lithuania and fled to Germany and later to US in 1907 to Pennsylvania.   Georgene Bender, msbobwhite@aol.com

My Jewish grandparents emigrated from Brest-Litovsk to Brooklyn, New York in 1922. Located on the River Bug, the city of Brest-Litovsk was subject to the ever-changing borders of Poland and Russia.  Ship passenger lists show their surname listed as Bonder.  Their naturalization records indicate it was changed to Bender.  
During my research, I found some people that emigrated from the same region with a surname of Bunder.  Some, but not all, later changed to Bender.   I haven’t yet determined whether these are relatives.
