2. John William Riesing 1852-1902 [My line - brothers]
+ Louise Ritsch

I have quite a bit of information on the family [7 pages Outline of descendents]. This has been a hard family to follow due to spellings: Riesing, Reising, Rising. Someone in California [possibly in Alameda?] gave me some information but wanted no further contact - I can't locate the information as to who it was right now, but entered all the info into my Family Tree program. If you want the information I have, e-mail me. Perhaps we will have pictures to share. Within the past few years, I found a "cousin" who is related through Bertha Riesing.
