Bell County, KY Appalachian Jewish (non practicing heritage)

Surnames: Susong Suesanger Risner Rosner Reisinger Thompson Hurst
I have relatives named Susong/Suesanger from Alsace Lorraine France that settled in Bell County Kentucky. They appear to be Sephardic Jews. My Risners (possibly Rosner or Reisinger) are suspected Sephardic Jews settling in Bell County as well. Same with the Greens. One confirmed Sephardic Jewish family (per my Aunt Jewell) is my Elizabeth Thompson Hurst (corruption of Hearst) connection. She looks Jewish in her photo. And, her dad was an indentured servant that took the name of his employer. Please connect with me if you have further information or share this heritage. I am getting my DNA tested.
