Re: Family History
I read your posting regarding your Aurin family. I wonder if they might be the same as Amelia Aurin'sa family. Here's what I posted today to the Aurin Genforum:
Amelia Aurin of Knoxville TN married Alois Metler 06 Frb 1873 in Knoxville. According to her headstone she was born in Liepsie Germany 01 Oct. 1864. Accordng to the 1910 census for Knox Co. TN her faher was Swiss German and her mother German. Also the 1910 Census indicates that she came to this country in 1861. Amelia is not in my direct line, but I'm curious about her parents. Is anyone else realted to the Aurins who came to TN in 1861?
