Just discovered the name of my maternal grandfather's mother......Madaline Rath. I know they eventually settled in Laboe, Germany (I've actually visited the home) but I believe they might have been from Prussia originally. Madaline Rath married David Beith.....they are the parents of Hans (my grandfather), Wilhelm, Dora and Elisabeth. If I can help anyone, let me know....just beginning my research on this line, really. If you have any info, would love to hear about it. Thanks.
