Hi,

I have collected information on Amzi Mix and recorded it as part of an overall search project of the Mix families of America.
I will copy and past this small part of what I have on him but I do have more.
I am not sure what you are looking for and whether you are related to this family or not.
You can contact me direct and I should be able to add to what you want to know about him or his ancestors.

My notes read as follows:

Surnames: Miches, Borgelt, Caspari, Rouse
I hope you can help me. You seem very knowledgeable so maybe you can send me a lifeline in this search. My great grandmother was either Dora Borgelt or Dora Miches (family members can't agree) I have a photo of the Miches family but no real names listed except "Dora Miches Caspari" I have also found a "Dora Borgelt Caspari" in the records so am very confused. My grandmother was Evelyn Caspari Rouse.
My great grandmother Dora had a sister named Rose. I cannot find out if either Dora Borgelt or Dora Miches had a sister named Rose. I would greatly appreciate your help.
Thank you.
