Re: Ludwig SCHMITT Buffalo, NY
In further searching, I can't find a connection with Ludwig and my Adam SCHMITT, who came to US in 1866. I thought they were brothers, but maybe they're cousins. I still have to check the Affalterbach church records to see if Ludwig comes from the same town as Adam. In regards to the 1880 NY census, have you looked at the index at your local FHC?
