My family includes Karlish,,,in Missouri back to Kalisch to Karlisch in Indiana. Christin Frederick Karlisch came from Germany to Evansville, Indiana where he renouced all allegiance to The King Of Prussia in order to become an American citizen. His son Chris Kalisch, was born 8-13-1874 In Indiana. His son Theodore was my husbands father. If we connect anywhere, there's alot on the net on Karlisch history for 100's og years.
