Re: Relation to Kurt Von Schleicher

In Reply to: Re: Relation to Kurt Von Schleicher by Rachel Paxton-Paquet of 282

My name is Debbie Schlicher Rankin. I am searching for information on my great-grandfather, Gus A. Schlicher. My grandmother told me long ago that the last name had been "Americanized" from Von Schleicher. Kurt was a relative of my Gus, too.

The Gus I'm searching for lived in Hoxie, Sheridan County, Kansas in 1902. He had six kids that I know of - Barney, Irene, May, Fred & John (twins), and Clarence, my grandfather. My granddaddy was the youngest of this lot and was born in 1902. My Gus probably would have been born in the 1860's or early '70's. My great-grandmother was Mary Ella (Ellie) Osler. Don't have any info on her family, either. Some of the family did live in Ohio, but I don't know if Gus did.

Gus was an engineer and family lore has it that he spoke seven languages fluently. He had been an officer in the German army before he migrated here. He may have been interned with other Germans during WWI. The family lost track of him at that point

Do any of these names match your info?
