I'm distantly related to the WALLRICH family in Osceola County, Iowa. Originally this family came from Kenosha County, Wisconsin. They originated in Germany. What follows is a quote from a church history for Our Lady of Perpetual Help, in Ashton, Osceola Co., Iowa: "Nicholas Wallrich, son of Mathias and Angela Gasper Wallrich was born March 2, 1843 in Trier, Germany. The family came to America and settled in Brighton, Wisconsin. On August 10, 1875 Nicholas married Barbara Johannes, born December 13, 1848, of North Vernon, Indiana. The following year they came to Iowa and settled on a farm in Lyon County, later moving east of Ashton where they lived until reti8ring in Ashton. Being one of the first settlers they experienced all the hardships of pioneer life, fighting cold winters, twisting grass for fuel, grasshoppers destroying their crops and so on." The WALLRICH I'm interested in is Susan who was the last daughter of Mathias & Angela. Susan married Peter KAPPES, son of Joseph KAPPES and Helena DAGEL.
