I am the youngest daughter of Frances Arville (Ahlers)Devore. She was born in Austin Nevada Sept. 9, 1909. Her father was Frederick Ahlers, the son of Frederick William Ahlers from Baden-Baden, Germany. Frederick Sr. came to the Reese River Valley, near Austin NV during the Gold Rush approximately 1873, with at least 2 brothers (Henrich and ?)and families like the Hesses. Prior to Baden Baden they were thought to have migrated on the Rhine River from Holstein Germany. They are also thought to be decendence of some Bavarians (possibly Jews in the 1700's) prior to being forced to flee Bavaria. If anyone has information (or clarification) on this family please respond.
