My name is Jerry KIESEWETTER, and I've just begun tracing my family history.
My Great Great Grandfather, Emil KIESEWETTER was born 26 February 1878, and emigrated to Baltimore, MD. I guess that it was sometime in the very early 1900's. On his death certificate his parents are listed as UNKNOWN - GERMANY. (I've got a lot of searching to look forward to.) He was married to Josephine DURAN.
If anyone is interested in sharing some information on the KIESEWETTER family just let me know.
