Thank you for your reply.
Since I posted that message, I found the Lorson Site. That was GREAT! I only wish my mom was alve to see it. As a young girl she would visit her Grandparents Mathias & Catherine often.
I have since learned that Suzanna's father was Augustus. And that helped so much!
I would like to know more about Johan-Mathias Baier and Barbara Engel. Immigration dates and possibly more details about the German connection.
You also mentioned a Californian connection. Not sure how that connects.
Please take your time in responding. I understand the computer thing! Thanks again for your time!
