Dear Denise,

I am coming into the Reiswig forum rather late... tried to locate your web site, but to no avail. The following family you note in the census reports posted is mine. Henry and Mary (Schafer) were my Great-grandparents (I knew Grandma Mary, but my ggrandfather died before I was born), William and Gertrude, my Grandparents. I can fill the family tree in further for you if you desire*.

As to the Alzheimers connection, we have not had any occur in our branch that I know of... however, there has been Parkinson's. My mother (now 79) has often told me that she and my Grandfather took part in a study in Denver, CO to do with the Reiswig family and Alzheimers back in the early 60's! She does not remember who was conducting that study.

1900 census listings show:
