My Great Grandfather from Westphalia
Most of my ancestors have been in America for 300 years or more. The only one I can’t find is my Great Grandfather Joseph Schroeder who came from Westphalia Germany in 1888. I have his application for citizenship from 1917 with some details but I have been unable to locate certain place names in Germany. Any suggestions?
I have another ancestor story. During the Revolutionary War, my Great x? Grandmother was excaping from General Burgoyne and a “horde of indians” with two of her children. She put one in a sattlebag and one wrapped in the hem of her cape. The cape is in a museum in San Antonio, Texas. I believe her name was Sibbalah Moseley. How can I verify the story?
