|An Ochs Family History traces the ancestry from the children of the editor of this history (Tracey Ellyn, David Tilghman and Howard Britain), back to Adam Ochs who was born in Germany in the late 15th century. Mathias Ochs, a son of Adam emigrated to America before 1733 and settled in Upper Milford Township, Bucks County (at that time), Pennsylvania.|
Ancestry of Ethel Roth Ochs the wife of Robert E. Ochs, Sr. is also traced to the early part of 1700's.
Biographical sketches, anecdotes and background material relating to the reasons for leaving Germany, the difficulty of the journey as well as brief descriptions of area of Germany from whence they came.
Any information would be appreciated. I am also willing to share the information that I have.
