I am looking for the American descendants of Carl Friedrich Rau and Rosina Brosi.He was born in Großbottwar, Germany, on 12 October 1804;she was born in G'war on 4 Nov 1804.They were married there in 1829.In 1853, they and their family arrived in NYC aboard the ship "Monmouth."
The Rau children consisted of: 1) Wilhelm, born 3 Jan 1831 in G'war and died in Chicago, IL 2) Carolina Friedrike, born 11 Jul 1837 in G'war and thought to have died in 1914.She sailed with her husband John Ritsher who was born in Germany on 9 Aug 1832. 3) Christiane Catherina, born 26 Oct 1839 in G'war.I think that she married a George Renz in the US. 4) Louisa Friedrike, born 19 Dec 1842 in G'war and died 8 Jul 1921.She married a Rev Dexter Hill in Beloit, WI, on 4 May 1869. 5) Carl Friedrich, born 4 Aug 1845 in G'war and died 19 Jul 1926.He married Sarah Belden who was born on 10 Han 1852. 6) Johann Conrad, born 26 Oct 1847 in G'war and died in Long Beach, CA.He married Carrie Buckeridge.
