Bio and Links
I have been researching my family ancestors for over 15 years and am completely enthralled by the historical experiences of family. One of my missions in life, when I have time, now is to learn about family through looking into the past.

I process edits from the edit tab first since they are timed, but I just discovered your research and posted it. Thanks for the fabulous information and sorry for the confusion.

I have been unable to discover any documentation or research supporting her parentage which you proposed. A wedding license could be a big asset. Thanks for all you do.

I just reread all this stuff and now see the problem. I did not link her to George Daniel, someone else did. I have Johann Peter in my records.

As far as I can tell there is no memorial for him.

Just transferred to you - families belong together - just happy that my efforts brought you together again.

Brosius & Reitz
Hi Len, Thanks for making my day!! I have no idea how I have been able to get some good shots as I just use a little old cheaper camera. There is a lady in central Pennsylvania named Lucille Procious that is the go to source for the Brosius Family. I am not sure, but she may have passed away this year(she was in her 90's). Just a wonderful lady and helped many of us with the family. I believe one of my most rewarding moments was finding the grave of Barbara (Paul) Brosius at Salem Lutheran Cemetery (Rough and Ready) in Schuylkill County, PA. Several of our Brosius family had looked for her a very long time, including Lucille. When I emailed the headstone photo to Lucille she was just thrilled!! It just seemed so nice that someone was able to "Pay-It-Forward" for her. Thanks Again, Mark
