1885 Letter in Family Papers

Posted: 1353457758000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Herb Evers Rauch Reinhard
I recently received a box of papers belonging to the Rauch & the Reinhard families who originated in Bavaria and settled in Buffalo, Scott Co., Iowa, in 1871 and 1855, respectively. In the box, was a letter written 30 March 1885 from "Mühlau near Innsbruck, Tyrol."

It was written by a young lady named Mathilda to her brother, Adam. In it, she mentions Ludwig, Kätherla and Rosa. (Perhaps siblings of Mathilda?) She also mentions "Brother Johann" who has a position of pastor.

She states she can be written to at:
Anna Herb
at the house of the honorable Mr. Evers
Mühlau near Innsbruck

I have no idea what the surname of Adam, Mathilda & Johann is. The honorable Mr. Evers is also a mystery to me. I am quite stuck & have no idea where to find information on the persons mentioned in this letter. Any suggestions from my fellow researchers would be most appreciated.

I will gladly scan & post the letter if anyone is interested.
