Re: Rauscher - Oneida County, NY

In Reply to: Rauscher - Oneida County, NY by Charles T. Rauscher of 111

Hi Chuck,

I recently purchased the 1880 census (set) from the LDS, so did some searching for your Joseph and family. I had just about given up when I decided to check the neighbors of Joe and Mary Ott, what a nice surprise! To add a little bit of mystery, note that your Joseph is residing just seven dwellings from Anthony Rauscher. With only seventeen years separating them in age, they could be brothers, but I suspect a father/son relationship is more likely.

Following that are a few odds and ends that I collected, some of which you may already have.

I am especially interested in your thoughts as to my findings about Frank/Joseph and Sophronia/Veronica “Massett” Rauscher, would two brothers both go by the name of Joseph? Also, do you think there is a connection between your Joseph of Vernon and Peter and Catherine Rauscher of West Leyden, Lewis Co., NY? Lastly, do you think Anthony of Vernon was a brother to Jacob of Ava?

Take care, hope to see you at our next reunion.

Oneida County, NY - 1971 Obituaries
Extracted from Rome Daily Sentinel
Rauscher Edward F Aug 1'71 Rauscher Joseph Massett Veronica White Mary A 1958 4
NOTE: So now we know the maiden name of Sophronia/Veronica? It appears that the middle initial of “M” (reference cemetery records) stands for “Massett”.
St. Mary's Cemetery , West Libery Street, Town of Rome
Rauscher, Anna Marie 1886-1971
Rauscher, Catherine 1880-1892
Rauscher, Frank J. 1839-1916
Rauscher, Veronica M. 1844-1924

NOTE: Chuck, do you think that “Frank J. Rauscher” was aka “Joseph Rauscher” (as per the St. Mary’s Cemetery records transcribed by you - “Veronica M. _____ married Frank J. ”) Maybe obtaining the full obituary would shed some more light on this? Also, I cannot find Bridget (1837-1879), Joseph R. (1832-1899) or Mary A. _____ ????-1898 as enumerated below, were they unmarked graves?

Notes for Joseph R. Rauscher (by Chuck Rauscher):
West Liberty St. in the city of Rome, NY.

St. Mary's Cemetery in Rome, NY.
Anna Marie 1886-1971 child of Frank & Veronica
Bridget _____ 1837-1879 married Joseph R.
Catherine 1880-1892 child of Frank & Veronica
Frank J. 1839-1916 married Veronica M.
Joseph R. 1832-1899 married Bridget
Mary A. _____ ???-1898 2nd wife of Joseph R.
Veronica M. ____ married Frank J.
NOTE: My guess is that Sophronia = Veronica. Bud

"I know that several families who attended this church resided just over the county line in Ava, Oneida, NY. Those that I personally know of are members of the Beyel, Roser, Traxel and Wolf families. There may be others. Also, many of these families were from the area of Pirmasens, Germany." - Lisa Slaski / translator & transcriber
