Surnames: Otts-Bessingers
Michelle, I don't know much about my Otts. I do know they were shoe makers in Russia and once here worked in basically general stores or Mercantiles. I only know for certain that my great grandfather Jacob had a brother Philip and a cousin Adam Schraeder. Philip was listed as a cobbler on his ship's list. Jacob lived in Berne, MI and AuGres, MI. Philip lived just outside Vassar, MI, probably in Gera. The most information I can find about where they lived in Russia is the Nowousensk district in Samara. I have never been able to find a village name. My Bessingers lived in Stahl am Tarlyk and Kukkus.

Were your Otts Lutheran or Catholic? My Otts were Lutherans.
