|1861 Emmigration nach Amerika zusammen mit den Eltern und 3-4 anderen Geschwistern:10|
Taufe, Heidersbach, 24.11.1852: "Wilhelmine Lucinde Günther, erstes Kind von Friedrich Ernst Günther, Bergsteiger & Anna Marie Hornschuch; Taufpate ist Gustav Robert Schübel, Sohn des Hieronymus Schübel, Weber aus Goldlauter; für ihn taufte Rosamunde Hornschuch, Schwester der Kindsmutter"5;
Wilhelmine Lucinde Guenther, who also was born in Thuringen, Prussia, in 1852 to her parents Friedrick Ernst and Anna Maria (Hornschuch) Guenther. Ernest was a miner who had come to America on the same ship with Christian in 1861along with Ernst's wife and four, possibly five, of his children including Wilhelmina.
Sometime between 1876 and 1879 Christian and Wilhelmina moved to Oregon. The transcontinental railway was completed in 1869, therefore they may have taken a train as far as they could. However, their final destination of Beaver Creek, Clackamas County, Oregon, indicates that at least the latter part of their journey was by wagon, because the U.S. railway system did not extend that far north at that point in time.
