My family are also descendants of Joseph b.1810 and Barbara, thru their son Joseph b.1837, his son Joseph b. 1876, married to Katerina Zeisler and immigrated to Macklin, Saskatchen. I wonder after travelling that far if our families knew how close they were. As far as why they went to Russia, were you aware that the Duchess of Wuttenberg at that time was the sister of Alexander III of Russia. Because of the French revolvation, the crops were being burned either by one side or another and her people were starving. She was known as a great Humanian of her time and begged her brother from help. He in turned had defeated the Turks and Tarters in the area and was very interested in settling friendly farmers in the area of what is now the Ukraine.
