Trying to locate information on FRANZ KEMPH, born in Germany and came to USA, abt. 1843 with his family.
Franz married,TERISSA WISROCK, (WEISROCK, WEISSROCK), 18 April 1854 in St Clair Co., Belleville, IL. Terissa came over with her family from Germany, Alsace-Lorraine area which was France/Germany, depending on the year and what country controlled.
We found them listed on a ship's manifest, the NARAGANSATT,which left the port of La Havre, France and arrived in the USA on March 27, 1843.
If you see anything that matches your KEMPF/WISROCK line I would love hearing from you. We have scant information on the KEMPF line, but quite a bit of information on the WISROCK line.
So help me build up the KEMPF side of the family! Thanks! I am looking forward to hearing from you.Katherine
