Re: Any other Beisch'es out there?
There might be a connection to the children of Dominik Beisch and Catherine Lutgen. Peter, Michael and John all came to the US in 1861 with Catherine who married John Grandgenett after Dominik died. They first settled in Minnesota near St. Cloud and then moved to the Council Bluffs area of Iowa in the late 1870s. The family lost track of these children but suspect there is a connection.
