Re: Info on "Riedesel," Hessen, Germany
Do you have any info on the Riedesel name, an area in Hessen, Germany?My cousin and I are looking into a link between the Riedesel area of Hessen and our Rupert ancestors' home location. Peter Hohmann, sponsor for our ancestor Pader Rupert, 1763, was from Hessen/Riedesel area/Germany. Pader's grandparents likely came from Germany in early 1700s to New York's Mohawk/Schoharie Valley.Can't yet get back to Deutschland!
Thanks, Jim Rupert
