I am an 11th generation descendant of Jacob Reisdorph from Gemeinsmann at Luettigelheim, whose son Johannes came to NY in 1710.I currently live in KY, but most of my relatives live in SD.My GG-grandfather, Francis Edgar, was born in Cattaraugus County, NY and lived some years in PA and OK.I am currently searching for information on Mary Lucinda Reisdorph Sherman Massey, b. 8-12-1863, a sister to my great-grandfather, Frank Thompson Reisdorph, b. 7-25-1861.They were born in Cattaraugus County, NY and were split apart at an early age when their mother, Mary Thompson Giles, died and their father remarried Mary Eva (Esther) Davis.Mary Lucinda lived her adult life in Holmes and Chester, PA and married Will Sherman.Their daughter, Florence, married Pierre Touret and had 2 daughters, Millie and Jennie.Will died and Mary married Frank Massey and they lived near Philadelphia.Frank was a blacksmith in the Baldwin locomotive works for over 25 years.
