* My families: Riegert, Scanlon, Moore and Heake.*

Updated March 23, 2006

I am researching the Riegert and Schwertzler families from Alsace, France. Theophile Riegert first appears in offical imigration papers issued in Strasburg in 1874, but I don't know anything before that. He married Catherine Schwertzler (father - Jacques [Jacob] A. Schwertzler, mother - Theresa Tempe) about 1874 and they had sons Emil Joseph and Louis Charles (my grandfather) and daughters Mary and Marie (Emma).

The Schwertzler and Riegert Families settled in Burlington County New Jersey in the Mount Holly area. Many of my ancestors are buried in Sacred Heart Cemetery in Hainesport, Burlington County.

My parental grandmother Ann E. Scanlon was one of three daughters of John Scanlon and Ann Boyle both of County Donegel, Ireland.

Any information would be appreciated. I am also willing to share the information that I have.
