Irish Palatine Teskey descendants are currently pursuing a new theory that we descended from Tesch ancestors. We know our ancestor Jacob Teske left the Rheinland Pfalz in 1709 and settled in Ireland. Two families associated on the ship rolls with his family also disappeared from the same town (Osthofen) as the local Tesch just at that time. Is there a connection? Any Rheinland-Pfalz Tesch genealogy info in the time frame of 1709 +/- say 30 years would be very helpful to the effort of checking this out further.
