My husband's Tessmer line, comes from Franz and Matilda Tessmer, Zanow,Prussia. Their son Otto, born Dec. 20, 1863. He married Katherine Krause- April 1, 1889. Sometime in the 1890's they came to the states. They settled near the Canton, Ohio area. Otto and Katherines' son, Henry, had a son -Alfred, who is my husband's father. I left out many names of siblings. Would love to hear from anyone.
