Re: John Nass of Wurttemberg Germany (born 1826), settled in Erie PA
I have a Christian Nass whom I believe came from Stuttgart, Wurtemberg, GERMANY. He was born circa 1828 and came to this country "at an early age". He married Christian(n)a Kramer but I don't know if in Germany or the U.S. He lived all the remainder of his life in Harrisburg, Dauphin Co., PA. His oldest child, Christian, was born in 1852/3. His other children were Charles, George, 3 unnamed who died young, and Katie/Kate. His wife was Lutheran and he was "first engaged in brewing and subsequently in the bakery business". He died in 1864 at age 36.
Most Nass people seem to have settled in Nova Scotia so to find another Pennsylvanian in the right time frame sounded promising.
