I am looking for any information on the Stauss family.The earliest names I have are Johannes Stauss who married Anna Maria Blickle.I have no dates of birth/death/marriage/birth place.
Johannes and Anna had a son Ludwig Stauss, born 12-24-1753, Markgroeningen Ludwigsburg, Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany.He died in 1820, Glueckstal, Odessa, Russia; he married (1) Johanna Knoss in 1779, at Markgroeningen, who died prior to 1804.Ludwig then married (2) Catarina Elisabetha Laux Kaiser in 1804 in Germany.
Ludwig and Catarina had a son Ludwig II, born 3-16-1805, Grigoriopol, Stinga Nistrului, Moldova; he died 8-19-1858, Kassel, Odessa, Russia. Ludwig II first married (1) Catharina Kaiser about 1832; he later married (2) Anna Maria Kaul in 1836 in Glueckstal, and this is the lineage of my husband's family.
Ludwig II and Anna Maria Kaul had a son, Jacob Stauss, born 1-28-1856, Glueckstal, who married Christiana Wittmaier on 9-26-1879 or 1884 at Glueckstal.They both died at Blue Grass, Morton County, North Dakota.
