Hi Millie, In going thru the Raith Family Genealogy Forum I ran across your posting. I am looking for an Oscar Raith Sr.He married Marie Luise Marquardt and they had a son Oscar Raith Jr. Marie Marquardt was a sister of George Marquardt, who married Elsie Marzahn (my wife's grandmother). Believe they mostly lived in New York.
Two more things--You spell your name "Peifer". My wife's great grandmother Wilhemina Fetzner married a "Pfieffer". Almost, huh? The other thing is you mentioned living in New Mexico. I have lived in NM all my life.
If you know anything on Oscar Raiith, I would apppreciate hearing from you. Carl
