Looking for Joseph Brand, born in the 1840s or 1850s in Willer. He and Catherine (???) had a daughter named Victorine on 29 Sept 1877. I've located Victorine's birth record but if there's any maiden name info for Catherine it's too hard to make out. I don't know what happened between Joseph and Catherine, but she left France in 1882 with my 3g-grandfather Conrad Wetzel and the three of them moved to Battle Creek, Michigan. Not sure if Joseph and Catherine were ever married. From what I get from my family, Catherine might've left France in shame so maybe Victorine was illegitimate. I'm also given to understand that either Joseph or Catherine's family had a lace-making business. Any help on this particular Brand line would be wonderfull!
