Thank you for taking the time to reply! No, I'm not positive that I have the correct Elisabeth. I've based my assumption on what I've been able to find online and comparing to what we do know for sure from here (in St. Louis, MO) from family, civil, and church records. I have absolutely nothing firm on any of the family before they came to US except what is noted in our church records and civil records, which puts them in Ostercappeln in early 1820's. I certainly appreciate the information and will keep looking for 'my' Elisabeth and the rest of the family! Thank you again!
