Hi, I'm pretty new here and not real savvy, so please excuse me if I'm repeating previously posted information.
I am a descendant of Johannes Rausch, born 5-7-1827 Osburg, Trier Germany and Anna Maria Dewald, born 1-05-1825.They were married 2-21-1845 and had Johannes Nicolas Rausch, born Sept 1847, Helena Rausch, born 11-8-1852, and Anna Maria Rausch, born 11-08-1852 (they were twins).
My grandmother was the daughter of Johannes Nicolas Rausch, born 09-1847 in Osburg, Trier.Nicolas, as I'm told he was called, immigrated with his wife, Elisabeth Breit, and their three daughters, Barbara, Elizabeth and Susan to Chicago, IL.My grandmother was the oldest daughter, Barbara.
Very little is known about the Rausches, and I am looking for information.
Please contact me if you have any information and I'll share what I have with you.Thanks!
