Barbara---I have Gaisers in my family and they came from Ottenhofen--Michael in 1886 (age 17) to Utica, NY
Godparents for one of his children was Catherina Kimmig.
I have Michael's parents as Michael and Maria Anna Schweigler--abt. 1844-1893 all in Ottenhofen. They had at least 7 children and when Maria died he re-married Karolina Sackman and I have the names of 9 more children.
Could we have a connection?
