Born in Schmidts Haus in Wunderthausen. Came to America on the ship Louise, docking in Baltimore on June 3, 1841. There are no other Wittgensteiners that I can recognize among the 300+ passengers. She was without question coming to join her brother who had arrived a few years before. For luggage she had "one little box."

Born at Petersgrund near Wunderthausen and came to America with her husband and one child on the ship "Palmer" that arrived in Baltimore in July 1834. It is a good guess that the child was her son, Georg Gabriel, who was born out of wedlock. Whether Schmidt was the father is not recorded. They wound up in Milwaukee.

Riedesel Carl Clement [Male] b. 5 JUN 1910 Poland, Clay, Indiana - d. 28 JAN 1996 Davenport, Scott, Iowa

Received degree in pharmacy in 1934 from the State University of Idaho, M. S. at the University of Nebraska, and Ph.D. at Iowa State University. Served on the faculty of the University of the Pacific beginning in 1948.

Riedesel Louise [Female]

This marriage is documented but it is only a guess that she is a daughter of William and Bertha.

Riedesel John [Male] b. ABT 1848 Stralsund, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany

As of 1880, he was working as tailor and they lived in the city of Chicago. By 1900 they were divorced and Dora/Dorothea was living back in Kane County.

Riedesel Friedrich [Male] b. 1816 Glewitz Rügen, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern - d. BET 1880 AND 1900 Kane County, Illinois

Whether this family preferred 'Rietesel' or 'Riedesel' is not clear to me. There are sources for both.

An 1863 passenger list (Hamburg to Quebec) lists this family with children Caroline 23, Sophie 14, Wilhelm 9, and Marie 5. No sign of John. The ship was the 'Main' out of Hamburg departing on May 2, 1863. This records gives his former residence as "Campe" in Prussia but I can find no such place.

An 1870 Census record suggests another daughter known as Anna who was born around 1834.

Riedesel Peter [Male] b. 11 NOV 1886 Thionville - d. 12 AUG 1975 Vancouver, Clark, Washington

His birthplace was known as Diedenhofen in German, but is now called Thionville as Alsace-Lorraine is again French. Came to the US on February 27, 1904 on the S.S. Vaderland out of Antwerp. His destination is given as Chicago and the home of his sister, Maria Roth. In 1913, he appears to have gone back to Europe and returned in the company of his sister-in-law Emma and two nephews. They were on the ship Patricia out of Cuxhaven and landed in New York. Both their "Nationality" and "Race" are listed as German. Unlike the 1904 record, his place of birth is given as "Paris, France." It is conceivable that this was not Peter at all but his brother John (husband of Emma), but the age seems to match Peter's. He was 5'7" with light hair and eyes.

Inducted into the army in World War I at which time his residence was listed as Kent, Ohio. He was wounded severely enough to qualify for a disability pension. Farmed in Oklahoma until the 1930s, but moved on to Chehalis, Washington.

Roast Dorothea [Female] b. MAR 1851 Berlin, Germany - d. 2 JUN 1926 Kane County, Illinois

Living in rented quarters with her three younger daughters as of 1900. She was divorced and working as a dressmaker. One other child was living (presumably Martha), but she had borne three others who were not then alive. She immigrated in 1862.

The state record of her death states that her father was "Boost Abel." The first name is unlikely but the clear implication is that she was born an Abel, with Roast being an earlier married name.
