Not a very German name but he lived in Rosa. I have a picture of him in a Prussian uniform taken around 1850 or so. He aparently died in 1868 of typhoid fever. Wifes name was Cornelia. 2 daughters Augusta and Anna and 2 sons William and Julius. I have no idea how to research this area but it is a different enough name that it may stand out. Any help is appreciated.
