Hello my name is Brienne Mains. I am researching my dad's side of the Family "Mains" and also my mom's side "Buchheit" and "Guckes". I have been researching for only a short time and most of my information is taken from my family's own documents. I would love to here from anyone related to me or if you think you are just send me an email!!

On my mother's side I have gotten back to Jacob Buchheit born 1815 in Germany. I'm not sure exactly when he came to America but I know he was a child. He owned a store in Monaca, Pa, and thatís also where he raised his children. Michael Buchheit, Jacob's son, became the Post Master at Monaca and both father and son fought in the Civil War.

Still on my mother's side, I have gotten back to Peter Guckes born October 1843 in Germany. He had 4 children Sadie, William, Otto, and Minnie. Minnie married Edward Graney and Otto married Anna Dahner.

On my father's side I have gotten back to Oliver Mains born 1835 in McKeesport, Pa. He had three children Oliver Brison, Charles W., and Sarah Mains. Sarah Mains married a man with the last name Churchfield. Charles W Mains married Jewel, but I don't know her last name, and Oliver married Sydney Harper.
