John, I have talked to Lisa's husband and left a message for her. It seems that she is not interested. I have almost a complete history of Theodor Pierre, born 1806 and Catherine Schneider Pierre, born about 1809. They landed in New York on June 27, 1846. They then went to Ohio. I know nothing about the three children that were born in Cincinatti. That was a very far distance just to have a baby. They are in the 1850 U.S. Census in Big Springs, Seneca County, Ohio. They did attend church in New Riegel. I have Baptismal Certificates of John, Nicolas and my great great grandmother, Catherine born on February 14, 1854. I have all the info that lisa wanted about Minnesota, including bap. cert's, plat maps, deed book findings, and ownership of land in Minn. Can you help me? Greg L.
