I have Michael Esch b.December 03, 1829 in Prussia and Margaret b.February 22, 1838 in Prussia. They came to the USA either serperatly or together before 1860 when their first daughter was born in Wash. DC Could this be a brother of the Valentine some of you write about? I would appreciate any info on the Esch lines.
Michael and Margaret's children are Elizabeth b.1860, Clara S. b. 1862, Albert F. b.1864, Emma F. b.1867, Mina b.November 14, 1871 (my gr.grandmother), Victor W. b.1872, Walter b.1876, Linda b.1880
