Thank you for answering my querry. My John Eigel that is the oldest came from Alsace Loraine. His wife was Katherine Rothchild. John was born about 1806. This John had one daughter, Mary, who came to the states with them also. (I have nothing on Rothchild either)
His son, John Eigel, was born about 1836, also in Alsace Loraine. He married Catherine Hartman. He died in Perry Co, Indiana. (They had several children)
The next John Eigel, born in 1912 in Pittsburg, Oklahoma, and was my father. (I am an only child)
I have a lot of info on the family here in the states, but would love to make the overseas connection especailly. I have nothing on the Rothchild or Hartman families.
