Tammy - I would be interested if you know where this family entered the country. My mother's grandmother first lived in the Chicago area. Her name was Rosette Zuercher. They came here in the early 1880s as the oral history goes, but I haven't verified the date. By the way, the reason for the different spellings of the name is that the German spelling is Zurcher, but the 'u' has an umlaut over it (two dots) which can be spelled as ue when the umlaut is not present. This is the case when typing on a non-German typewriter. Thanks, Jim
