Dear Linda,

I recently got some new info that fits in with some of yours - I hope. Would you be able to help me verify some things?

You have Johan George Brauss(1751-1822) married to Dorothea Fiszler. Through info that was posted by Laura DeWald on the internet,Johann and Dorothea had 7 children. I am looking for info on two of them.(Jacob born 15 Nov 1783 and Johannes born 7 May 1787.) Jacob married Susanna Franckenfill and they had 4 children,one being a John Braus and another was Amos who married Catharina Siegfried. Do you have any info on either John or Amos? I recently sent for a copy of the will for my relative John Braus who died in 1850. It showed that an Amos Brauss became the guardian and raised John's children after his death. John married Maria Magdalena Siegfried and Amos married her sister Catharina. I haven't found a paper trail that shows exactly what John and Amos' relationship was besides brother-in-laws. I was thinking they might be brothers, but I hadn't found anything to substantiate that until I found the DeWald info. Her material goes back to Hans Peter Braus 1678 who married Anna Catharina.I e-mailed, but got no response. I am hoping you might have some more info that would prove that the John listed as Amos' brother is my relative. I would really appreciate any help you could give me. Thanks,
Elise Higginbottom
