Jacquline,I am sorry that I didn't put Indiana in my inquirey.But I do have Aders that came from alsace Lorraine .His name was Casper Eder at that time. He was born abt. 1726 he went to Frederick, Frederick Co., Maryland He had 8 children so it is possible that some of them went to Missouri. But mine went to indiana, The next of my family was Adam. If you can come up with any connection I would be glad to share.Adam was married twice and Their names were Sarah Margreth Ader, Benjamine Ader, and Nancy Ader, but this is as far as my information goes on that family.
