My family files show Fredericka Tesch m. Ernst Engfer. Both come from Pommern, Prussia. I, too, am looking for her parents and any info on the actual area she came from. My great-great grandfather was August Friedrich Tesch who m Emily Engfer from the Sparsdee/Sassenburg area. He was an Eigentremur [?sp] which means a "gentleman" landowner. Their children were Metha, Paul, Erich, Caesar, August, Gustav and Max. The last five ended up in the Pacific NW in Oak Harbor, WA. I am from Max's lineage. Are you in contact with Kurt Boldt or Brian O'Hare? They have extensive info on the Tesches from Belle Plaine, Scott Co., MN.
