<On my REISWIG/TEBELIUS Branch of the family, we go back to a different Conrad Reiswig who was born in Crimea, moved to South Dakota and died in Lincoln Valley North Dakota . We don't know his parents, but his children were born from 1862 through 1887 in Russia and Milltown South Dakota. I assume this puts him in the same group as your Conrad, I would think they would be cousins. (or?) >>

We don't know yet what the relationship was. There were 4 Reiswig families that came to SD from the Crimean Peninsula between 1874-1893. Heinrich Wilhelm Reiswig (father to the "other Conrad Reiswig") lived right next door to Phillip Heinrich Reiswig (father to your ancestor Conrad Reiswig) as noted on the 1880 SD census. There were many intermarriages between these families and their descendents.

1. Phillip Heinrich Reiswig and wife Anna Katherina Philapena Kafton came to the USA with four of their children:

Depart:              10 May 1876, Hamburg, Germany
