He was identical with the Karl Reinhard Rauck, born June 19, 1817 in Geisa, Grand Duchy of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach, died Nov 14, 1897. The American naturalisation officers (and census takers) obviously could not dintinguish the Kingdom of Saxony and the Grand Duchy of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach, which was one of the Thuringian States.
He came to America in 1838 and was naturalized on Aug 29, 1844. His obit is to be found in:
Saturday Globe, Nov. 20, 1897.
But I have not found any living descendants. There was a great-granddaughter Dyma E. Bennett, born 1902 (raised in Ilion village, Hermkimer County, NY), and - if I am not mistaken - gggrandchildren: Mrs. Robert (Joanne) Miller of Marcy, NY and Richard Murawski of Utica.
