I have done a chart and I now suspect that this family is possibly a cousin of my husband's great grandfather.......

You have found that Paulina Esch (Eash) married George Hostetler. I have found that both of them were born in the same generational level as my husband's great grandfather, Harrison Truitt whose parents were in Healdsburg as you noted (I believe his parents were, indeed, James H. Smith Truitt and Paulina J. Hostetler and in fact the family was in Healdburg for years and is in their history museum).

'Our' Paulina J. Hostetler was born in the generational level of Paulina Esch Hostetler's mother and father. guess is that Paulina Esch's husband, George could have been a child of Paulina J. Hostetler's brother, making Harrison and George, possible cousins. From what you have sent me, I, now, doubt that we have 'Esch' in our family line.

I am posting this for others to read but I will write to you Margie for a clarification or two......

Thank you, thank you, thank you for being so kind to write to me what you have.....

Sincerely, Joan
