My great grandfather, Peter Charles Kutscher, was born in New York (1857). His mother, Mary, came to New York with her husband's family but returned to Germany after Peter was born.I assume Peter's father died on the trip over or shortly after in New York as Peter was raised by his uncle Karl Kutscher, along with Karl's four daughters (Barbra, Elizabth, Sarah and Kate). Peter married Mary Jane Clapp (who was born in 1852 in Illinois) in Tecumseh, Johnson County, Nebraska, on December 25, 1879. My grandmother Phoebe Ruth Kutscher was born January 10, 1886, in Tecumseh. Phoebe's siblings were Mary, Bill, Joe and Juanita Catherine (Katie). Phoebe married Clarence A. (Moon) White. Peter and Mary Jane Kutscher died in Chambers, Nebraska. Hoping to make connections with descendents of Peter and Mary Jane Kutscher or descendents of Peter's uncle, Karl Kutscher.
