I am doing an intership and I am a college student. One of the swords I am researching in the museum collection is a cup-hilt rapier with the name "Peter Tesh" engraved on the blade. This sword was acquired around 1898 and I was wondering if anyone could give me information on this man. The only Peter Tesh I could find that was old enough would be Heinrich Peter Tesch who may have changed the name to Tesh once he got to America. Was he nicknamed Peter? In many of my findings in my own family tree, many of my ancestors went by their middle names. Does anyone have a picture perhaps of Heinrich or another Peter that has him with a sword? Any help would be great. Thanks.
