Jacob Fridericus Gies was born 27 Jul, 1772 in Diedesfeld.He and Catharina had the following children:
Joannes Peters Gies born 19 July 1800. Franciscus Gies born 2 July 1802. Maria Margaretha Gies born 13 Aug 1804. All were born in Diesfeld.
My husband is descended from Joseph Antoni Scherr who married Elizabetha Gies and emigrated from Diedesfeld in 1863 to Lancaster County, PA with three sons.I do not have the Gies/Argus genealogy in my database but I do have Gies information in my vertical files. One of the first priests in St. Anthony Catholic Church in Lancaster was a Gies.
