Like Rod, I'm new to this family search thing and after a visit to the LDS site, have found (like Rod) a relative who "may" have liked his mother to much. But other things lead me to think data relations may be off.
I'm 3nd generation of a Barbara (Amacher) Etter. The only Bio info I have is she was born Nov., 1846 in Switzerland to John Magdalina (Imdorf) Amacher was 1 of 10 children. "She had attained to womenhood" when she relocated to Ohio in 1868.
Moving to Washington Co., KS, she married Jacob Etter born in Switzerland 12/25/1839. He came to the U.S. in 1868 to KS in 1869.
He died 11/27/1882 in the "prime of vigorous manhood". I guess so - children included John, Mary M., Edward A., Lizzie, Rudolph, Anna S.(my G-Ma), Jacob H., and Emma E.
I will admit to fishing but info to date is limited so any path is open. If you wish reply directly to email@example.com
