It has been a long time, I'm thinking that it is far longer than 25 years. Maybe at your Dad's funeral in 1963, or at your Mom's in '83. And I'm sure we didn't spend any time visiting. As you can see from the message board there isn't much happening with the Maresch Family History. You were my only nibble! I think the information that I posted was correct. The brother's name may have been Louis and he may have gone to St. Louis to live. Anyway the story goes that Great Grandfather Maresch met Antonie Suchomel on the streets of Chicago and they were married 3 weeks later. I'm enough of a romantic that I like the story. Frank, Sr. and Louis had brothers and sisters that did not come to America. They lived in Czeck. and apparently had very hard lives. We also believe that they were of the Catholic religion (or some of them were). You are right, there are a lot with the Maresch name in Germany. More than anywhere else and with the name being a bit unusual they could easily be related. You might ask about some of this if you visit with Aunt Doris or Aunt Marie. Having lived near Grandma and Grandpa for many years, they may know some of this or help add to it. Mom thought that Tommy was doing some genealogy at one time. I have mainly been working on the Hays side and haven't done much of that this summer.
I don't like to put to much personal information on this, but you can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Anyone else that has an interest in the Maresch name can do the same!! Actually I like the genealogy on the message board, as I think that is the best way to find others that might have an interest. It was great hearing from you.
