I would sincerely appreciate any information on my ancestor, August Ristau, who is a dead end in my family tree.I have a few nuggets of information on him, which follow:
I believe August was born somewhere around the 1850's. He lived in Menasha, WI for the last 26 years of his life, and had 3 daughters: Mary, Ida and Anna. These daughters took the name Rister.I do not know his wife's name. August was a member of the Menasha Court of Catholic Foresters, and was a member of St. Mary's in Menasha. Looking through many photos I have of August, I believe he had one brother.
