in 1942 my wife and I were married, by then we also had 3 kids, tom susan, and little berto.
we were living 15 miles from the shore, and had a small but nice house to call a home for ourselfs and our 3 kids. times were good and we had received letters from oversea from out relatives, our cousins were considering moving to america due to the hard times in europe and the closing of the corn factory, and the clothing factory for his wife.
we had let them know through many letters that america was a great land, these were foreign relatives, and they should bring the whole family down, and come live in america.
I was working at a clothing material factory in town, and was making enough money to continue our lives as far as I could see, but there was a storm one day, and our home was destroyed in it
from then on I was homeless and have been, I am online today to look for my wife and children, there last names may have changed but if not they are nay,
I am looking for any information about William Jorlan Rasche. He was born in January 1901 in New Jersey, and he died in the Philippines in 1945. I believe his father's name was Albert and his mother's name as Magdelene Tommerdich, but this is unverified. I am interested in verifying who his parents are, and learning any information about them. If you can help me, I would appreciate it!
Trying to find more information about my 5th great grandfather GILBERT MILLER (b. abt 1803 - d. 20 March 1885). He was born in New Jersey to his parents, Gilbert (b. abt 1775) and Elizabeth.
He married Rebecca P Scull (b. 9 August 1807 - d. 25 Apr 1893) 7 Feb 1825 in Egg Harbor Twp, Atlantic, New Jersey.

My father was Harry B Owens Jr & my mother was Margaret L Devilbiss. I am looking for my cousins. The children of Snader Furman Devilbiss. I have found some tree matches, but I would like to connect with them.
My great great grandfather was an apprentice to a man named Ayers (sorry first name) between 1833 to 1840. My great great grandfather's name was Joseph Burchard Stites. He was born in 1825 in New Jersey, we assume Cape May. Joseph's older brother, John was the one who apprenticed him out. We don't know where from. I'm not sure if Joseph and his family moved from New Jersey to Philadelphia or he was taken from New Jersey to Philadelphia for the apprenticeship. I also know that Joseph was not supposed to be taken out of Philadelphia, but was and Joseph ended up in IL, I have two places: one was Christian County, IL and the other was Pike, IL. Does anyone have any information about anything like this in their past?
Also, while trying to find information about Joseph, I did come across some information that I found interesting: two, possibly three Stites males who were in the same generation of Joseph's father (sadly, we know nothing of him except that he died at sea in South America), early 1800's, who married two or thee different Ayers girls (I assume that they were sisters) so I'm wondering if there was a connection between the Ayers girls in New Jersey and the Ayers in PA and that's why Joseph was apprenticed to them.
I am looking for any information about my great great grandfather's family. I don't have a lot of information. I have his name: Joseph Burchard Stites and that he was born in 1825 in New Jersey, we think Cape May. His father (we don't have any information) was killed (we don't know what year) in a maritime accident and was killed "presumely as sea". We know that Joseph was apprenticed (we don't know what year or for what) by his older brother by the name of John to a man based out of Philadelphia named Ayers (we don't have a first name, but interestingly enough, there were three other male Stites' who would be in the same generation as Joseph's father married Ayers girls and I was wondering if there was a connection there as well, and so maybe that's why Joseph was sent to go with Ayers) and Joseph was told that he would not be taken out of Philadelphia, but was anyway and as a result, he lost track of his family.
If anyone has any kind of information about Joseph, John, or this Ayers person, that would be most appreachiated.
