I'm trying to locate the town of birth for my great grandfather Gregor(y?) Roth.

He was born February 23, 1843. I presume he was born in Alsace since: 1) he married a woman from Mackenheim (Catherine Untz) so they spoke the same dialect, and 2) the 1870 census shows him to have been born in France, while in the 1910 census he gives his place of birth as Germany (as a result of that nasty little Franco-Prussian affair). He emigrated to the US in 1861, embarking in Le Havre and debarking in New Orleans. Any ideas or suggestions would be most welcome.

I'd be happy to share what info I have re: his course in the US after his arrival.

Merci, danke, & thanks - GR
