Hello, I just started to work on my family tree when I came across this forum. My great grandfather and great grandmother are listed as #2 Herman Walter Reising and Amelia Holz. I have alot of information about her, along with pictures. I have his Civil War discharge papers. His date of birth is in question since he lied about his age to serve in the war alonside his father(he was 16 not 18 when he enlisted). They lived in the Sussex-Templeton area and are buried in Colgate at the Methodist church. Together they had 12 children, 7 made it to adulthood. My grandmother was the only female to make it, and then was the youngest, born October 5, 1888. Her name is Alma Louise Riesing and she married Herman Charles Munz in 1910. She is buried in the Rose Hill Cemetary in Sussex. Their only child, Victor Munz is my father. Alma was very close to her brothers Edward, Herbert and John. I never heard anything about her other brother Alford Riesing; and her brother Herman Riesing died in his late 20's of influenza. Hope to hear from you.
