I recently learned the name of my gggrandparents oldest daugter who is
Jeanette STRAUS, born 21 March 1819 in Selters, Germany. Her parents are
Mayer Feist STRAUS and Gelchen nee MICHEL. Jeanette apparently stayed in
Germany when Mayer and his three sons, Abraham, Lesmann and Nathan emigrated
to Cleveland, Ohio.
Presumably she stayed in Germany because she was married, but I don't have
any further information. She was definitedly in Germany in 1891 when she
sent a congratulatory letter to her father, Mayer on his 100th birthday.
Does anyone have any further information on Jeanette, who she married, and her descendants?
