Please see my reply to William Schleisman. I am related to Barbara Fallstad, who sent the original letter asking for information about the Schleismann family in Louisiana. I would be very interested in learning if you have any additional information about the Schliesmann family in Wisconsin. I really think our families are connected. One connection I found is that one of the Schleissmanns who lived in Portage County, WI married an Eiden. Maybe it is just coincidence, but my great great grandmother was Anna Eiden who lived in Jefferson County County. She married Conrad Daniel, and they ended up living in Beaver Dam Wi. I think there's also a connection between the Eiden family in Portage County and the one in Jefferson County. I just haven't found it yet. Any information you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
