The path is wandering too far from home I'm afraid.
My Joseph Pecher was married to Elizabeth and stayed in the Chicago area. He had a son Joseph but the dates dont match up. My Joseph was about 50ish in 1850 and listed as coming from Austria although my dad claimed he was from German Bohemia??
One of his sons, my grandfather Frank Pecher, was stabbed to death in 1917 in Chicago... the only colorful thing I could find about that family.
