I dont have a direct link here to Lawrence Offerle for you, what I do have is a bio on a John Offerle who was born in Alsace, France September 30,1829.He had came to America in 1847 settling in Warren, Pennsylvania. He married a Catherine Fisher on Dec. 23,1852, her parents also being natives of Alsace, France. John's parents were John Jacob and Saloma [Peter] Offerle both who were natives of Alsace.The bio furthur states that the ancestors lived in Normandy France and that they had fled to Switzerland due to religious persecution and later went to Alsace, settling in Baldenheim. It lists John Offerle's g.g.grandfather as John Jacob Offerle, and being born in 1705 and died November 17,1773. If you believe there is anything worth pursuing here, I would be glad to forward it.
