I am looking to connect with the Moritz family that had a child named Roselia Moritz. Roselia Moritz married Peter Roth, Peter came from Alsace Lorraine in the early1900s. I think Peter and Roselia were married in Iowa or a neighboring State because Peter was just a boy when he came across from Alsace Lorraine . Peter, Roselia and their boyslived andfarmed around Ottumwa, Iowa.
The story surrounding Peter and Roselia (Moritz) Roth was, Peter was taking a herd of cattle to Chicago,IL for his older brother ( Joseph Roth) to sell and was never seen or heard from after he left with the cattle. Joseph searched for Peter but was never able to find him, so the family thought maybe he had been robbed and killed on his way to Chicago with the cattle since the place Peter was to sell the cattle to had not seen Peter with the cattle.
At some point, Roselia took her boys and moved to Milford,Kansas and lived out her life there. I assume that she had her missing husband registered as deceased after so many years, I do not know if she had ever re-married but Im trying to find out as much info about Roselia Moritz Roth and her children as I am compiling my ROTH FAMILY TREE and they are part of it!
If anyone would know of a Roselia Moritz in their Family line, I sure could use your help.
Peter Roth and Roselia Moritz's children: Lawrence Roth Elmer Roth Arnold Roth Eugene Roth
