In Reply to: Jean George(s) Fuchs-Sankt Blasien, Baden Germany by Lawrence Fuchs of 793

My Johannes Georg Fuchs is a generation or two after your ancestor and is from Weiswell, Germany which is fairly close to Sankt Blsisen. I know the Fuchs name is fairly common in Germany and France. My Great- Grandfather, Charles Fusch, was born Karl Fuchs in 1815 in Lahr, Germany, but was educated in Paris, France and his sister, Karolina Fuchs married a cousin(?) Louis Fuchs in Strasbourg, Bas Rhin, France. From what I can surmise, Strasbourg has been said to be in France and also in Germany. Also, you no doubt know this - that Johannes is Jean in French. My 2nd Great- Grandfather's name was Johann Balthasar Fuchs. Do any of these names sound familiar? After they came to America, Charles (Karl) and his sister and family, alternately went by Fuchs and Fox on their censuses and also would give the information one time that they were from France and the next that they were from Germany. I thought it was interesting to read that your ancestor died in Alsace, France.
