I know this is an old message, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that some one is still keeping en eye on it!
My Grandmother is Mamie Catherine (Eisele) Howell; I have been trying to confirm the information that I've come across thus far is correct - I'm very new to this and it's a bit overwhelming!
I have an individual by the name of Georg Andreas Eisele (info was obtained from Rootsweb) who was born around 1827 in France. The census file I located listed him as a stone cutter, listed his Father's birthplace as WERTEMBERG (sp?); further information identified his wife as Dorcas Nicholason and that he passed away inJun 23, 1903 in Indiana.
I have more information on my website, and would love to find out if any of this is factual or if I've connected the dots in the wrong direction.
