Vienna - in memoriam Minna BEER {Hamerschlag, Cleve, Herdmenger, Zoff family}

Cemetery: Döbling

Group : I6 Number 29

Expiry: 1 09.09.2008

Gottlieb Hamerschlag was Ober Ing of the Nordwestbahn in Nimburg:

His wife Ernestine was née BECK



As yet, I have not identified the victim Minna BEER on a database - I presume she is the daughter of Kurt and Laura Beer and a granddaughter of Gottlieb


Susan Buyer wrote to me: I can shed a little light on the family relationships on

this photo. The Hamerschlags are relatives of my Bohemia/Vienna/New York

Hamerschlag family. Gottlieb *Hamerschlag* (born 1857 in Bohemia,

possibly (Reichenberg/Liberec) and his wife Ernestine *Beck* had 3



1. Gustav Hamerschlag m.Lili *Herdmenger*

2. Mimi Hamerschlag m. Otto *Zoff* (well-known poet)

Mimi lived in Flushing, Queens, NY

3. Henriette Hamerschlag m. N. Von *Cleve*

son Heinz Cleve


From the dates, I would guess that Frieda Herdmenger was

Lili's sister. The *Beer* name is new to me, but I would guess that Laura

Beer née Beck was a sister of Ernestine Beck, and that Minna was

Ernestine's niece.


Gustav and Lili Hamerschlag's son Wolfgang died in

Vienna in 2006 and is buried at Dobling. I had some email correspondence with> him some years ago. I have two photos of Ernestine Beck Hamerschlag that

Wolfgang sent me at




These folks were all cousins of Margareta Berger-Hamerschlag.
