The Rea/Motzer Family Genalogy

Updated September 5, 2000

I am doing research on the Motzer/Rea families many of whom came from Bond County, Illinois. Jonas Motzer emigrated from Germany on September 3, 1864. The Rays are descended from James Ray of Virginia. The Petersons came from Sweden and the Reas from Scotland. They are also related to the Petersons, Plogs, Nolans, and Rays from that area, which would be Greenville and Pocahontas.

Take a look at the book and my family tree is available on the World Family Tree...if you can provide any additional family information please E-mail me.
