Grandson of Christian Trachsel: September 14, 2004 I just found this site today... so here is some information.
I( Timothy Gerard Trachsel) (b. 1956) am the son of Albert Lewis Trachsel ( married Dorothy Jane Dietrich), ( still living..b1919); brother of Gregory Albert Trachsel (b.1959);brother of Mary Trachsel (b.1950); brother of Barbara Trachsel Beischel ( b. 1953); brother of Marjorie Trachsel ( b. 1959(twin of Gregory)). My grandfather was Christian Trachsel who immigrated from Switzerland and setteled in the Cincinnati, Ohio, USA area, before divorcing my grandmother Irene Daniels. Grandfather Christian, then moved to Morristown, Tennessee, USA and started a new life with a new wife. He had a second family in Morristown, which I know nothing about.
