I'm looking for any and all information in regards to Philip Henry Reidenbach and Mary Lawall.
According to information that was passed on to me by an aunt, Philip Henry Reidenbach was born in 1828 in Frankfort, Germany (now it's called Frankfurt am Main)and Mary Lawall was born August 1830 in Alsace-Lorraine (according to the 1880 Ridge Township, Van Wert County, Ohio census, Mary was born in Prussia.With that, I'm assuming that Mary was of German lineage and NOT French; the Alsace Lorraine territory has been fought over between France and Germany many, many times and this leads me to to the conclusion she's German).
I'm the son of Robert L. Reidenbach born in Van Wert County, Ohio; Robert is Richard Earl Reidenbach (my grandfather) and Catherine Murphy; Richard is the son of Benjamin Earl (my great-grandfather) and Gladys Fay Ault; Benjamin is the son of Philip Reidenbach (my gg-grandfather) and Mary Ellen Fisher; Philip is the son of Philip Henry (my ggg-grandfather) and Mary Lawall.
My questions are: 1) When did Philip Henry and Mary Lawall come to the US? 2) My father mentioned one time that he thought he remebers hearing that Philip Henry and Mary Lawall returned to Germany, did they? 3) Does anyone have any information on the children of Philip and Mary: Mary, Kathryn, John and Anna ( I have no information except their names and I'm even beginning to doubt that)
