I have learned that my gg-grandfather, Christoph George Fuerst/Furst/First may have been born in Norwalk, Ohio in January 1841 but I haven't been able to find any info to confirm this so far. Nothing turns up in the census' on him at all in Ohio that I can find.He also went by C.G. Fuerst.
He had moved to Wisconsin, he was a sailor, and married my gg-grandmother Mary Wagner by 1860.
Any help or leads would be very appreciated. I'd love to find Christophs (and my) family.
