My name is Gary Lee Achenbach. My father is William Henry Achenbach, son of George Washingrton Achenbach, Son of Elias Achenbach (b. 1842), son of Samuel Achenbach (b. 1806-Berks Co.), Son of Johannes Achenbach (b. 1773), son of Anthony Achenbach (b.1749 - Germany), son of Johan Mathias Aughenbaugh (b. 1730- Germany. Anthony married Anna Elizabeth Palm in 1813. Johannes married Maria Magdalena Maunz in 1842. Samuel's wife was Elisabetha, I do not have a last name for her. Elias married Sarah Louisa Hughes, daughter of one of his sisters,i.e. his niece. According to the census information they had 19 children, I think I have identified 17 of them. I would appriciate any contact with especially those related to Elias as my father and his siblings never mentioned any Aunts, Uncles or cousins from that side of the family. Thank You!!!
