I have the naturalization papers for Joseph Rixton, born in 1821 in Switzerland and settling in Sullian County, NY. It lists his original name as Joseph Reichtensteiner. I cannot find out anything about a Reichtensteiner family in Switzerland. Sounds more German to me, so might be from the border. He emmigrated to the US in 1848. I know about his family in NY, but know nothing about his family in Switzerland. Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Thank-you.
