I an researching the MELCHER family. I believe they originated in Berlin and had a Brewery there. They imigrated to the United States after 1850 and settled in Cleveland, Ohio, later in Pennsylvania. The only names I have are Louisa MELCHER and her uncle Wilhelm MELCHER. Wilhelm was at the very least a high ranking officer in the Army before coming to the United States. Anyone familiar with the MELCHER name? Louisa married a Prussia soldier Hienrich ORLOWSKI.
