I am searching for records on Wilhelm Gerhard Raichle. He was born on January 10, 1867/1868 in Stuttgart, Germany (or near there). There is a a lot of mystery surrounding this individual. He is said to have been adopted, but that he (and his younger sister, Mary Elisabeth) never knew if Racichle was their given name or an adopted name. They are said to have been orphaned just after arriving in America. They were sent to an orphanage in Cincinnati, Ohio. Others say he arrived in the United States at age 16 and that he came to avoid serving under the Kaiser. I have searched in vain for years on him.
