My name is Robbie Gasser and am the grandson of Charles Gasser of Lawton, Iowa. I was born in Rochester, Minnesota, 1963 and feel I have the best relatives one can ask for. I live in Fort Worth, Texas and would welcome any correspondance from other Gassers. Best to all.

I'm searching for anyone whom might be connected to Charlie Gasser who was born in the late 1800's. He was a half-brother to my great-grandfather Otto Joseph Franke, son of Otto and Fanny Francais. They were orphaned Otto took Charlie home with him on his 18th b-day 2-22-1900. The family lost track of him sometime later.

My great grandmother was Rosina GASSER. She was born in Switzerland and came to Ohio, then to Illinois. She married Jacob WOEHRLE in Ohio. Any links? please note that the first two letters of my address are RN, not an M, like it looks. Thanks.

My grandmother was a Gasser from Schwyz. There is a book on the Gassers published by Father Fridoln Gasser in 1993 that traced the family back to 1521. This past April I meet Father Gasser who is retired now. If any one is interested please e-mail me baqck and I'll try to help you out in the Swiss side. Father Gasser said there were 2 major Gasser clans in Swiss our comes from Schwyz, Ibach area.

I am seeking information on Anna Barbera GASSER, born Dec 12, 1826 in Switzerland and died December 2, 1887. She was married to Adam Bechtold and they had a daughter named Elizabeth Anna Bechtold/Becktold born July 10, 1850 in Switzerland or Germany.A son named Godfrey Becktold was born in New Orleans, LA in 1858. Immigration records search have not located date or port, but likely around 1853-1855 as per family tradition. Anna Gasser was also married to Phillip John Bersch, about 1860 in LA?

Dear Bob
I am very interested in what you have on the Gassers
Our name was origanaly Gasser But my grandfather was Ferdinand and in the french navy The De was put in front of his name for some sort of outstanding thing he did Like we give a medal.
Every time I try to trace them back I wind up in Switserland and am lost.
Thank you very much

Franscina came to US on ship April, landed Jan. 3, 1818. Ship list has Jacob Gasser age 53 with 10 in household. Next to them is Fricker family with 5 in hosehold. This Fricker family is from Oberhof, Aargau, Switz. and I assumed the Gasser family also from there. Later Joseph 11 (b 1796) met(family tradition says they came on same ship but didn't know each other) met and m, later moved to Cinn. O. where she d 1834-35.
Do you have any data on Gassers in Oberhof area?
Thanks for any information.

I am the grand-daughter of Walter J Gasser. I am not sure where he was born, although I think it was Wisconsin. He died in 1952 in Seattle, Wa, and was born in 1887. He settled in Omak, Wa and was quite a business man there. There is an old family story of Walter's brother (or maybe an uncle, you know how family stories are)while living in Wisconsin, got cabin fever one winter. He ran out of the cabin screaming into the woods, never to be heard from again. Any stories like that in your line?
