Ristaus in South Dakota
Posted by: Toni Ristau Date: March 26, 2001 at 17:30:26
  of 64

Grandparents were Richard Herman Ristau, born in/near Hamburg, Germany, ca. 1870; emigrated to US 1884 (with older brother Otto); married Martha Marie Drees, b. Peshtigo Wisconsin vicinity ca 1872. Both Richard and Martha died (buried Warner Cemetary, near town of Warner, South Dakota) in mid-20s. Have hit a dead end tracing "roots" in Germany for Richard Ristau; no luck tracing Drees roots, either.

Any information would be appreciated (please post here, or email me at toni@swcp.com)
