Notes for Christian Tarnutzer
I have double checked the data for Christian. The godparents and witnesses at his christening were Gschwr. Georg Ludwig, Georg Ludwig, Elsbeth Hartmann born Klavadätscher, Jgfr. Barbara Sutter, and Jgfr. Maria Keßler.

He is likely the Christian, born February 1841, who was boarding with Charles Hamberger in Eden Valley Village, Stearns Co., Minnesota, at the 1900 census. He had been out of work for six months in the previous year.
