Re: Moesch Family
thank you so much Carol for the article.
Mr Ggreatgrandfather Otto Moesch was born 11/10/1865 Wildenfelds, he died 5/12/1927 Charity Hospital Lousiana.Otto's mothers name is Caroline Wilhelmine Lahr Mosch, b.3/26/1835 d./21/1917 Wildenfels of old age 82.(there are 2 dots over the o).Father Friedrich Ernst Mosch b. 12/11/1835 d.8/8/1910. They were married in Schonau(2dots over the o)1858.Information obtained from: Church register of the church at Wildenfels, County Zwickauer Land Germand. "The church of the three Maries".,Hartensdorf
Otto inlisted in the Spanish American war in 1898 form New York, I am unable to locate any naturialization, Immigration, or anything in the censue of New York.According to one census located, I believe in Louisiana, his Year of Immigration is 1892, That would have put him around 27 yrs. old at the time of his immigration, and 33 yrs old when in New York he inlisted in the Spanish American War.
According to a letter written by his grandson dated 12/27/1947 from Alfred Glass,of Stuttgaft-Hedelfingen to Andrew W. Moesch, Otto's son her in the U.S. Jackson co, MS. Otto had a wife in Germany named Lina Auguste Moesch, she died shortley after there daughter was born the daughter is Alfred Glass's mother and his father is Otto Glass. Alfred doesn't mention his mothers name.
I am looking for any information that can be found.I have hit a dead end, but am still searching, any help will be greately appreciated.Thanky you, Mary
