I have a ANNE MARIE FISCHER, b. 1807, who married VALENTIN HOLLENDER, b. 1898, in 1831 in Leiterswiller, a town of Bas-Rhin, Alsace, France. They had the following children between the years 1832 and 1853: JOSEPH, MARIE ANNE, BARBE, VALENTIN, another VALENTIN, another BARBE, MADELEINE, JOSEPHINE, and another JOSEPHINE HOLLENDER. The marriage record of VALENTIN HOLLENDER shows he was from Hohwiller, another town of Bas-Rhin, Alsace, France. My great-grandfather was FRANCOIS JOSEPH HOLLANDER, b. 1855 in Schwabwiller, Bas-Rhin, Alsace, France. He told family members he came from a large family who has been in the Alsace-Lorraine region of France for many, many generations. I suspect he may be related to the HOLLENDERS mentioned in this query. If anyone has any info that can be of help to me or would like additional info on this family, please write me at VLP24@freewwweb.com
I'd be glad to share info. Thanks!
