My Reis/Rice came from Germany -- Berlin we think but? My
ggg grandparents were Georg and Elizabeth Weller Reis/Rice. They had two children #1 (? can't prove yet) and #2 was Jacob born in 1809 in Cumberland, Maryland. Georg we dead or disappeared by 1812 as Elizabeth Weller Rice married Francis Madore in Cumberland, Maryland. Jacob was given to a family by the name of Leydic/Lydic and raised. He married and moved to Columbiana County, OHIO.
