Mathias Pracht was born in Bavaria, Germany around 1806, immigrated to the U.S. around 1850, settling in Louisville, Ky. He died around 1870, in Louisville. Mathias or Matthew was a cigar maker or tobacconist.

Any information on the family is appreciated,

Have you been on the Louisville Public library site that has old newspapers? Articles can be found from 1830 through 1922. One must have a Louisville library card to use the service. There is a very good article on Anton Pracht as it tells about his life. Since it is in pdf. form I cannot attach it here. I'll be glad to send it to you if you want to give me your e-mail address.

I hope that others can give you information too.

Mr. Koppel -- I do not live in Kentucky, so do not have access to the library's databases.
