Hello--My GG Grandfather was Peter Wex sr, b. 1815 in Hess-Darmstadt, Germany, came to Buffalo, NY from Germany. His daughter Elizabeth, b. 1842, also in H-D, was my G Grandmother. He was the father of Peter Wex, Jr. who was a ship captain, b 1843, H-D. The Family of 4 Immigrated from Hess-Darmstadt before 1861; I have not yet located their Imm. records. Peter Sr's wife was Dorathia Linn, b. 1817, also in H-D. Peter Jr's wife was named Louiesa, b.1847 in Buffalo, NY. I found her surname but I cannot locate it at this time. Their children were Anna b. 1868, Kibbie b. 1870, Lena b. 1872, Dora b. 1874 and Peter III b. 1877. Peter Sr d. about 1878 and His wife about 1885. Dorathia was in shipbuilding and Great Lakes commerce with her son Peter in Buffalo, NY. Captain Peter had several documented shipwrecks at various points around the lakes.
