My 3rd-great-grandfather, Joseph Rehart, lived in Bearfield, Perry Co., Ohio. He was supposed to have emmigrated from Alsace, France, around 1832, perhaps coming through Pennsylvania first. The baptism record for his third child, Andrew, from St. Francis of Assisi Catholic church in Chapel Hill, Perry Co., Ohio, says:
"1841, Jan 3. Andrew, son of Joseph and Agathy Ricardy. Sponsors: Mary and Solomon Feney Ricardy."
I don't know what kind of a name Feney is; maybe someone has poor handwriting?
I know nothing about Joseph Rehart's parents or siblings, other than that his mother might have been named Regina. This baptism record seems like a good clue, but I can't figure anything out from it. I would appreciate any help with this.
