I sent this message to Joyce Blackman (ID *****1439) who wrote: On his marriage record, John Affolter listed his parents as Elizabeth Lederman and John Affolter. John the son came from Switzerland according to his naturalization record, and was born August 1841 in Baden. Elizabeth Lederman was said to have come from Alcase Loraine. John listed her as having been born in France. We have no information about his parents other than this and wonder how we might learn more about them. Joyce Blackman firstname.lastname@example.org
My response was: I was searching the web and came across your 2007 posting. My great grandfather Francois (Frank) Xavier Wintemberg 1846-1921 was married to an Elizabeth Leaderman 1848-1917. I'm not sure if there is a connection. My family came through the same areas before settling in Ontario, Canada and into Detroit Michigan.
