My great grandfather, Leonard Ostertag, born
1820, emigrated to the USA in Jan 1846, settled in Wellsberg, W. Va. the name was
changed to Easterday. His sister Agatha came
to the USA in 1853 settled also in W.Va. a
brother Christian stayed in Grosselfingen.
Their fathers name was Mathias who married
Legata Blumenschein...I have some info on
this line, am now seeking info on Mathias
and Legata. Mathias died about 1843 in
Grosselfingen...Further note: Christians
children also emigrated to the USA and
settled in Wellsberg, Martin 1858, Magdalena
and Leonard 1866. Appreciate any correspondence on this linage.
