Re: schloesser family in indiana
Sharon, my ggfather August Copenhagen, came to USA with his step-father, August Schloesser, his mother Louisa Schloesser, children Lina and Albert H. They ended up in Livingston Co., KY in the late 1850's. They Americanized their names to Slesser and Sleiser. When August Slesser died in 1868, his tombstone bore the name August F.W. Schloesser. He is supposed to have come from Hanover, Ger. Could they be connected?
