Missy, Thanks for the reply. My grandparents immigrated to Marion, OH in 1853 from Hohenwettersbach, Durlach, Baden, Germany. Several came at one time, and they came with a family of Hochs (2 of the brothers had married Hoch girls.) My greatgrandfather was John F. Lust, who apparently prospered in the confectionery business in Marion. From the censuses I have searched I know that there was a family of Lusts already living in Marion Co. in 1853. I do not know the relationship, but would love to! I don't know of Wilbert, but if it isn't a lot of trouble ask your father about the Marion roots. If there is a connection, I will share all I have.......Jim
