John, I don't remember if I have talked to you in the past. I have not worked on my Spath line for quite some time so if this is repeat I apologize. I have been looking for a family connection to my Spath line. I know they were in the Cinn. Dayton and possibly the Franklin In area. I have some information on my direct line but have not been able to find information on brothers, sister, and parents. Joseph Spath(Spaeth) born abt 1830 Baden, Germany. I believed he entered the US in New Orleans around 1850. He married Mary Anna Moess (Mess) in 1857 in Piqua, Miami County, Ohio. Could he possible be one of the 5 Spaeth brothers in SW Ohio?
