Looking for all info on Riessen family-- know they started on the Island of Fehmarn, Germany, early 1800's. Came to America in the mid 1800's and first settled in Davenport Iowa. There are two branches of this family, going back to the Island of Fehmarn, Germany.Paul Riessen bornNov 7, 1814. Believe him to be the brother of Claus Riessen born Feb. 22, 1813. Father of claus known to be Jochen Riessen. Need to know all the children of Jochen. Jochen probably born in late 1700's, location unknown, but probably also on the island of Fehmarn.
Willing to share all info I have on the Riessen Family. I have fairly good list of both sides of the family from Paul and Claus down.
