My ggrandmother's name was pronounced REESEE or RISSEE. I have been searching the name RISSE, but after a visit with older family members, I am not sure of the spelling. I will use the spelling RISSE in this message in order to simplify it.
Anna Katherine RISSE was born in Celestine, Indiana of Dubois County in 1862. I think her father's name was Casper RISSE. Anna's mother's name is unknown. If anyone has any connections or info about these names...or can just clarify the spelling of the name, please email me at Ofenanny@aol.com
. I know that they were of German descent. ANNA married Casper Bernard TELAAR b in Germany, and my grandfather, Bernard John TELAAR was born in Speilerville, AR in 1889. ANY info would be greatly appreciated. SMILES.....Judie.
