Thank you for replying, Sharon! I'm still here, and still hoping for connections. I've gotten back to Peter Aschbeck born 1815 in Bavaria m Mary Ann Seaser b 1829 in Wurttemburg. They married 1852 in Defiance Co, Ohio. I haven't been able to connect to the Wisconsin Ashbeck's yet ... I know there's a slew of them, and I'm sure there's a connection somewhere. If I could find Peter's parents and/or siblings, I might be able to. Thanks for emailing.
