does anyone have any information concerning Edward Fankhauser (br. Switzerland 1896-d. Ohio 1975)and wife Louise E. Fankhauser (Roth). born Aug 1899, d. 1962. Edward came to Ohio in 1923, not part of the Hans-Peter influx of Fankhausers in 1800's. Louise's family were from Amherst- Louis J. and Bertha Roth, Bertha's family- John Rolli and Elizbith Krige, both of Switzerland.

On ancestry.com, there's a WWII Draft Card, a SS Death Record and an Ohio Death Record for Edward. I think there's a 1930 Census for him and Louise but her name is misspelled. There's also an emmigration record (2 actually - same record but I assume one is a copy) but it's not in English. I'll post the transcriptions, if you want the original documents, DM me with your email address.

Sorry it took so long to respond to the info you were so kind to forward. Had to go back to Iraq for awhile. While I had most of this info, you have at least reassured me that I am on the right track. Now if you know a way to get the Swiss to cooperate so I can find my paternal great-grandparents, I'll be dancing in Edelweiss.
