Johann Nicholas Truttschel is my great-great grandfather. I have a certified copy of his Registration of Death (Sheboygan County, Wisconsin) that shows he was born in Eligle___ Germany. The last letters are unintelligible. I believe that should be Eisleben, Germany. His date of birth is shown as April 16, 1802 and the date of his death is September 21, 1887. The names of his mother and father are not given.
