Louis L J Koch and possible brother George W. Koch
Hello Susan.It's been many years and I suspect your email won't work.I am researching George W. Koch who lived in Cincinnati, OH.His parents were Jacob and Charlotte and he was born about June 21, 1886.His death certificate told me the names of his parents and that he was born in Rochester, NY.His 1910 US census told me that his father's place of birth was from "Hun German" and mother "Ger Bohemia".
I discovered an 1870 census from Rochester, NY listing a Jacob A. 48 born Hungary, Charlotta 37 born Bohemia, Louiz 15 born Texas, Gustav 11 born Texas, Emil 9 born NY, Martha 7 born Austria, George 5 born NY and Richard 4 born NY.
I was very excited to confirm this and found a few individuals on familysearch.org who listed the parents similarly.One such was a Louis L.J. Koch and his death certicate showed Jacob A as the father but what I noticed was he was a detective.So was Geo. W! After researching the directories I found some similarities.However, when I further researched Louis and his wife and her father, I learned of her Jewish heritage.George W. I've learned was a convert to catholism but I do not know from what religion.Do you have any information on the brother of Louis to help me confirm?Thank you.
