I am searching for any details on the BERGER family of the city of Bisel in Haut Rhin in ALSACE. My great, great grandparents, Catherine Berger and Antoine Rocklin were married in Bisel on April 3, 1826 and had six daughters. They were Catharine (born: Feb 23, 1827), Maria Ursula (born: Feb 27, 1828), Agatha (born: Jul 28, 1830), Josephine (born: Apr 14, 1833), Anna (born: Jan 24, 1837) and Celina (born: Mar 11, 1841). AGATHA Rocklin was my great grandmother. She accompanied her parents and five sisters from Bisel to New Orleans in 1853. From there the family traveled, via Louisville, KY, to Cincinnati, OH by steamboat.On this trip up the Ohio River, Agatha met Joseph STUDER whom she married on January 12, 1856. Joseph Studer is also from Alsace.
Agatha's mother, Catherine Berger, was born in Bisel about 1799; her father, Antoine, was born in Bisel about March 1799. Catherine's parents were Jean Berger (born in Bisel) and Anna Marie Witzberger. Antoine's parents were Jean Rocklin and Anna Diseu.
PERHAPS I HAVE RELATIVES LIVING IN BISEL OR THE U.S. WHO CAN HELP WITH MY FAMILY TREE??
