My wife's great grandparents were Wilhelm Diedrich and Caroline Augusta (Wienieke) Pleiss of Uslar, Germany.They were probably married about 1870-73 in Uslar.Children born in Germany were: Frederica (1873, Heinrich P. (1876), Paul G. (1877), Wilhelm H. (1881) and Carl (1884-5). The father, Wilhelm D., was a cigarmaker in Uslar and was born about 1847-8, the son of Frederich Pleiss and Minnie Bestiko(?).Caroline Wienieke Pleiss was born about 1852, daughter of Wilhelm Wienieke, probably of Uslar or area.A Heinrich Pleiss, gardner of Colmar, was a sponsor at the baptism of Wilhelm H. Pleiss in 1881.Wilhelm D. Pleiss family settled in Baltimore, Maryland, USA in 1884-5. Any information about these families will be greatly appreciated.Thank you.
