Wilhelm Heinrich Rein 1829-1835
Posted by: Peggy J Rein Date: April 22, 2000 at 23:17:26

Wilhelm Heinrich Rein was born apx. 1829-1835 in Frankfurt au Main, Germany. He married Edisto Edith Ransford. Wilhelm died 1900 in Hymera Sullivan Co. Indiana.
The story goes like this, he and a brother (name unknown)were storways on two different ships leaving Germany, Wilhelm came to America and the brother went to Australia.
We have found Wilhelm Heinrich Rein's name spelled several different ways so what is the correct spelling, I have no idea. The German government put their parents in jail and took all their belongings because the boys left Germany and did not join the Army at that time. I am looking for any connection to this family in Germany, their birth , parents, brothers, sisters.? The lost brother what happened to him? Is anyone out there looking for someone of this time frame who left Germany about 1850-1860? Thank you so much for any information you may have.
Sincerely, Peggy J Rein
