We have many spellings that are not correct in our name.My true spelling is Meirose. However, between the census and other record takers (including our family coming to america from Germany) our name has been incorrectly spelled. I have found my great grandfather under all the above mentioned spellings.Please to not exclude yourself as family due to a different spelling. Most of my family I have found rooted their homes in Kentucky and Ohio.However, New York and Indiana have come into the picture, after speaking with my grandmother (during her childhood there were visits to an Indiana farm and correspondence between families between those states).My line: Joseph Meirose b abt 1851 in Oldenburg, Germany married Maria Elizabeth Berter b abt 1848 in Prussia, Germany (this was joseph's first wife.He did have a second marriage).They had 2 children John Michael Meirose b sept 27 1877 and Caroline Meirose b 1875 (she married a Joseph Pohl).John Michael married Magdalena Schreiber Meirose (aka Lena).Their children were Loretta and Eleanor.I am looking for find Joseph and Maria Elizabeth's lines.If you have information that would be great.I think our family is larger than we all think.I hope we can eventually figure out how we are all connected.I have 1 of my Meirose still living in Ohio.She is in her 80's and still may have information.Please contact me.Maybe by pulling all of our info. together we will have the full family picture.
