Working recently on my husband's line takes me to John Plaifs / Plaiss /from Stetten am Heuchelberg in Wurtemberg, Germany - born September 30, 1793. He married Anna Barbara Floch on August 02, 1827 in Floyd Co., Indiana. He may have arrived in Indiana between 1822 - 1826 (but have nothing for sure. My question concerns a family legend about John: that John's brothers left Germany around 1808 as not to serve in Napoleon's Army.But John did join as a drummer boy and served in Napoleon's' Army, including during the Battle of Waterloo. Does anyone have additional information on this story?
