I would direct you to Timothy C. Parrott, who has done alot of research on the Aicher family.See his 12/11/1999 posting to this family forum along with the replies!
I'm quite sure that by "Richard Aicher" you are actually referring to Romwald Aicher.He is listed first in Timothy's posting of families who immigrated to the U.S. from Mahlstetten, Germany.I know I am a descendent of Romwald's (first) son, Louis, due to Timothy's 1986 letter, copied below, as well as from other family sources.Your list of "Richard's" (i.e. Romwald's) children is incomplete since it's missing Louis (born 1854) and Eliza.He mentions a Magdalena, who you refer to as Lena.
Anyway, I'm descended from this Aicher family as follows: Romwald married Catharina Swady (died 4-17-1897) & begat Louis (& 8 others, as Timothy lists). Louis married Rachel Westerhoff (born 12-8-1859) of Alsace Lorraine, Germany.They were fruitful, having 11 children.Their 9th was my grandma Jennie (b. 6-3-1895 in Lincoln, Nebraska).Jennie married Layton Wilbur (b. 12-10-1895), having a son and two daughters.Their son, George Wilbur (b. 2-22-1919), is my dad.
Here is the text of the 1-11-1986 letter from Timothy, which was brought and distributed to the Aicher cousins at a family reunion in Sept. 1988, which my parents attended. Actually, these cousins are descendents of Louis, not Henry:
Dear Mr. or Ms. Aicher:
I am assisting Mr. Manuel Aicher of Wildberg, Switzerland in compiling a record of the various Aicher families who emigrated to America from the village of Mahlstetten, Germany. Among these families is found one Römwald Aicher, born 6 February 1826 in Mahlstetten to Bartholomäus and Liberata (Schweizer) Aicher. Römwald Aicher emigrated to America as a young man and settled near Burlington, Iowa where he died on 23 April 1882.
From my research I believe that you many be descended from Römwald Aicher through his son Henry Aicher, born about 1868 near Burlington, Iowa. Henry Aicher was living in St. Paul in 1932 at the time of his brother William’s death. Other children of Römwald Aicher include: Louis, Eliza (Mrs. Rausch of Minneapolis), Magdalena (Mrs. Schafer), Frank, Wesley, John and Amanda Rosa (Mrs. Wegener)
If you are descended from this family, please let me hear from you. An Aicher family history is in preparation, and we’d like to make it as complete as possible. If you can help by supplying dates of birth, death, etc., or if you would like to know more about the ancestry of this family, please use the enclosed self—addressed stamped envelope for your reply. Thank you.
Sincerely, Mr. Timothy C. Parrott
P.S. If you are unable to help, please pass this letter on to someone who might.
