Re: Windisch Name

Classification: Query
Surnames: Windisch
My grandmother's surname was Windisch. She tells me her family was one of the 1st to settle Buffalo, NY after the burning of Buffalo in the war of 1812. Her mother was Anna (never married, quite the taboo in the 1920's, she raised my grandma Marguerite in the family home.) Anna had a sister Wilhelmina (sp?) who had a son Edgar-who also carried the surname Windisch- who I'm told moved to the Detroit area. I believe Anna and Wilhelmina's father may have been Edward or Edgar. I am told my grandmother's family emmigrated from Germany, near the French border- I don't know how valid that statement is. I know that doesn't answer your question, but if any of that rings a bell to you, please let me know! I'd be delighted!--Kristi
