Does anybody have ties to the Tesch family in Vellahn Parish? Catharina Maria Dorothea Tesch married Hans Hinrich Dähling and had several kids starting in the early 1820s. They lived in Brahlstorf of Vellahn Parish and came to America in 1852. This was two years after their son, Carl Friedrich Jürgen Dähling, born in 1825. This family settled in Goodhue County, MN. I would like to hear from any other of the Tesch family that came to America from Vellahn. You can read about my family at htp://homepages.rootsweb.com/~dahling/ and click on the "Dahling" link.
