John W. Riegel/Elizabeth Pletscher-Illinois
I am looking for information regarding the parents and ancestors of John W. Riegel, born 16 June 1831, died 23 Nov 1889. He married Elizabeth Pletscher in IL in 1866 and they had the following children: Ottilia Susanna, Gustav Adolph, Johann W, Fredrich W, George L, Mina Elizabeth, and Konrad Samuel. Elizabeth remarried Peter Herstein in 1890 and had at least one child, Elizabeth Louisa Herstein, who married Ralph Vergil Carnes. Any information on John W. Riegel, his parents, his children would be much appreciated.
