Johann Wilhelm Rausch (1679-1723) was my 6th g-grandfather.

Johann Wilhelm Rausch
born 20. 01. 1679, Baumholder
died 21.09.1723, at the age of 44
married 24.11.1701 Anna Margaretha Jost in Baumholder

Anna Margaretha Jost
born 28. 11. 1683 Baumholder
died 20.01. 1734 in Baumholder

Children all born in Baumholder:
Johann Abraham 1704-1704
Isaak 1707-1760
Hans Jacob 1711 - 1711
David 1714 - 1718
Johann Phillip 1717 - 1775
David 1720 - 1791
Johann Abraham born 1723 and died unknown, but not in Baumholder

Source for all of the above: Kirchenbuch der reformierten Kirche Baumholder

Johann Nikolaus Rausch (1674-1698) (son of Johann Abraham Rausch)is wrongly named in the 'History of the Roush Family of America', as the early ancestor of so many Rausch's in North America. The fact is that he never married nor did he leave Germany. He died at a young age, as a minister of the Reformed Church in Sobernheim. I am privileged to have a copy of the original funeral sermon on him.

Regrettably, the incorrect information about him has been used by many researches as a fact.
