Ruth - I am so pleased to hear from you.You are the first person to make a connection with my William Pues, my g-grand- father!(And yesterday (3-18 was my birthday - a very nice present.) My William was born 1811 in possibly Hanover, Germany.My info is very sketchy - I have not found any immigration papers.He married 1837 in Cincinnati a J.M. Henrie and received a land grant in 1839.This could be the first wife because his son, my grandfather Louis F.was not born until 1863 in Cincinnati.Louis' Mother is Mary Anne. I have Louis' marriage certificate indicating a date of 11 Jan. 1893 in Washington, Mo. where he subsequently raised his family and where my father Raymond was born. I also understand that Frank, who was born in 1844 in Cincinnati must have been from the first marriage. However,his wife Katherine Finger, born in 1845 was from Onesbrueck, Germany!He also settled in Washington, Missouri.I recently received info from his family which I will share with you later.
I know nothing of an Agnes or John, siblings of William and Frank.Nor do I know where William died.
I will check my records more thoroughly and will keep in touch to share information.
