I AM POSTING THIS AS A FAVOR TO A WONDERFUL LITTLE ELDERLY LADY WHO TOOK IT ON FAITH THAT I WAS HONEST AND WOULD MAKE AVAILABLE THE INFORMATION SHE PROVIDED ME WITH. I AM A GRT GRT GRANDDAUGHTER OF JULIUS OPPERMAN, ORIGINALLY FROM BRUNSWEIG, PRUSSIA, WHO IMMIGRATED TO AMERICA, JOINED THE AMERICAN ARMY,WAS A HOSPITAL STEWARD IN THE AMERICAN ARMY FROM 1857 TO 1862 ON THE PACIFIC COAST, WHO MET AND MARRIED AN IRISH IMMIGRANT, MARIA MITCHELL, WORKING AS A DOMESTIC SERVANT FOR THE POST SURGEON AT FORT HUMBOLDT, CA., MUSTERED OUT OF FORT ALCATRAZ IN 1862, WAS A TAILOR BY TRADE AND BECAME THE PIONEER TAILOR OF BENICIA, SOLANO COUNTY, CA. THEY HAD NUMEROUS CHILDREN, ONE OF WHICH WAS KATHERINE ELIZABETH OPPERMAN, THEIR FIRST BORN AND WHO WAS THE ONLY CHILD NOT BORN IN BENICIA, SHE WAS BORN IN HUMBOLDT. KATHERINE MET AND MARRIED THE ONLY OTHER COMPETITION TAILOR IN BENICIA, BEORGE DRIESBACH, AND HAD SEVERAL CHILDREN. I DON'T HAVE MUCH INFO ON THE DRIESBACHS, BUT WOULD BE WILLING TO HELP THE DECENDANTS OF THIS GEORGE AND KATHERINE DRIESBACH DO SOME OF THEIR FAMILY RESEARCH GOING BACK TO OUR COMMON ANCESTORS, JULIUS AND MARIA OPPERMAN. I HAVE SOME COPIES OF OPPERMAN FAMILY PHOTOS, A COPY OF KATHERINE AND GEORGES WEDDING ANNOUNCEMENT AND I BELIEVE A COPY OF THEIR WEDDING CERTIFICATE. THERE IS A BIT MORE INFO ABOUT THE OPPERMANS ON THE GENFORUM OPPERMAN WEBPAGE. I ALSO KNOW WHERE GEORGE AND KATHERINE ARE BURIED AND A COUPLE OF STORIES THAT WERE PASSED ON TO ME BY THE LITTLE ELDERLY LADY FRANCIS.

PLEASE ONLY SERIOUS MEMBERS OF THIS DRIESBACH FAMILY REPLY, AS I AM TERMINALLY ILL AND TRYING TO GET MY FAMILY RESEARCH ALL ORGANIZED AND READY. THANK YOU. MY E-MAIL IS
