some history more for the Rauch-family of Rauch-mill.
the mill was once on another place on Mühl-creek like now. nearly after WW1 a new mill was build on valley-ground in Mühlau directly at railway and river Inn. from time WW1 to WW2 the first factory became almost a ruin. the firm Rauch, through which the U.S. occupation after World War II supplied the population with wheat, also received corn. The family began to press at first on a small scale maize germ oil > factory was named Olea. it looks like meanwhile now demolished for new housing, how stated in this articel in 2010.their Kronen-Öl/ crown-oil was very wellknown. i remember when was a child also this oil and it still exists. but now is outsourced to Wels in Upper-Austria to a bigger location.
Anton Rauch > Georg and Leopold Rauch > 3 sons (firstnames?)

as you don´t know if a connection from your Rauch to the Mühlauer Rauch-mill and you have no idea who the persons at letter are, maybe ask at parish-church Mühlau if there was a pastor with english lastname that time. think this can be a possibility. no idea if they take time for such things, but make attempt.

more a chapel - Mariahilf am Grabenstein, belonging to castle Mühlau (Sternbach or Sterbabach). think it´s not an own parish, not far away from Mühlau-church:,_K...

a very good link showing the complete history.
maybe you take a translator. fact also is that Leopold was in London at World Expo. >>>
Anton Rauch gave the mill in 1884 to his sons George and Leopold. The latter especially was fascinated of the rapid development of electricity in the second half of the 19th Century. Leopold left after he had thrilled at the World Expo in London, the uses of electricity in 1886 to install a lighting system in various areas of the Rauch-mill. Even with the establishment of the Upper Rauch plant and the first power transmission system in Tyrol Leopold Rauch was fairvof his leadership.
