My ancestors are from eastern France and southern Germany, which produced a large amount of immigrants to the U.S. in the1860-1870 period of time. My great grandfather, Bernard Siebert was from Ottenau, (near Baden) Germany, and his wife came from Liederschiedt, Lorraine, France, which is right on the border of Germany. (Maybe Liederschiedt was German at one time. I am not sure how the borders changed over time.) Another great grandfather, Martin Miller (Meuller) is from Bavaria, and he came from the area near Rupperts Stone Quarry. I don't know where this is in Bavaria, but the stone is in the base of the Cincinnati Blessed Virgin Mary Statue in the center of town?. Martin Miller's wife was named Mary Telger (There are many different spellings of her name) and she was from Luxembourg. My cousin married a Beck, and his grandfather, Romuald Beck, who came from who came from Baden-Baden, Germany.
