Not my family line, just sharing.

From the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY, COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F. A. Battey & CO., Publishers. 1883."
page 253, Union Township, White County, Indiana

"EMANUEL REISH, of the Norway Mills, is a native of Union County, Pennsylvania, where he was born October 6, 1833. He is a son of SOLOMON and LYDIA (STEES) REISH, who are of German descent and also natives of Pennsylvania. In 1843, the REISH family moved to Columbiana County, Ohio, and eight years later emigrated to Huntington, Indiana. From this place they removed to White County (Indiana), in 1853, settled in Liberty Township and engaged in farming. In 1865, the parents moved to Francesville, Pulaski County, (Indiana) where both are yet living. EMANUEL REISH is the eldest of five children, one being deceased. He was reared on a farm; began doing for himself the fall of 1853, and, July 10, 1854, was married to MISS ELIZABETH SUMMERS, of Columbiana County, Ohio. Two children were born to this union, both of whom are now dead, and the mother departed this life August 23, 1863. MR. REISH followed farming until the past few years, and he yet owns 190 acres good land in Liberty Township, all of which he has acquired by hard work and economy. September 29, 1864, he married his first wife's sister, MISS SALLY SUMMERS, and February 12th, 1878, he traded one of his farms in Liberty Township for a half interest in the flouring mills at Norway, to which place he moved in April 1878. MR. REISH is among the progressive citizens of White County, is a Republican in politics, a member of the A.O.U.W., and MRS. REISH is a member of the Christian Church."
