This is the search for the ancestry of Godfrey Frederick Rusher who immigrated from Bavaria to Bedford Co., Pennsylvania sometime between July 24, 1866 and March 12, 1870.
Godfey, better known as "Fred or Frederick" was born June 9, 1830 and his wife Wilhamina "Mina" about 1856. They had two sons (possibly other children) born in Bavaria; Godfrey Frederick II, Feb 18, 1858 and Francis, July 24, 1866. The last three children were born in Cessna, Bedford Co., PA; Margaret Elizabeth, March 12, 1870, Mary Jane, about 1872 and John Charles, September 1, 1874.
Godfey II married Anna Virginia "Jenny" Hartzel Abt.1884 (0 children); Francis married Hanna Elizabeth Koontz Jan. 3, 1889 (3 cld); Margaret married John Frank Smith Dec. 19, 1901 (3 cld); Mary married Henry Holliday Carpenter (4 cld); and John married Laura Virginia Stailey Dec. 7 1898 (7 cld). All of these marriages were in or around Bedford Co., PA.
Any information on the ancestry or decendantry of these familys and others related will be greatly appreciated. Needles to say I would like to share what I have.
