  • Notes 
    • “Another Roggy family, that of Joseph (a son of Jean and Catherine Roggy Guingerich, born in 1815 near Weidesheim Kalhausen (57)), came to Schottenhof in 1840 with Barbara Schantz whom he married in Kalhausen in November 1839. She died September 30, 1840, four days after giving birth to a son named John. May 1, 1841, Joseph remarried in Sarralbe with Madeleine Schertz also from Weidesheim, where her father André was a miller, her mother being Jacobine Engel. The couple had two children in 1842 and 1844, then leaves Sarralbe shortly after to go to Borny, near Metz, where was born the third child in 1846. “ [1]
