Michael Bertsch, m. Christine [B116], bef. 1809, d. bef. 1833 [The 1816 census does not show a Bertsch Family. However, a Michael Bertsch voted for Baltas Unrath in the 1821 Glueckstal Colonies election. He signed his name.]

  1. Jakob Friedrich Bertsch [B116], b. 15 April 1809 at Zavelstein, Wue., m. Louisa Weiss [B116], bef. 1832, d. 5 January 1875 at Bergdorf
    1. Jakob Friedrich Bertsch [B116] - To USA 1886, b. 17 May 1832 at Bergdorf, m. Elisabeth Rau [B116], 4 October 1853 at Glueckstal, m. Elisabeth (Christine) Fiege, 21 June 1881 at Bergdorf, d. 23 May 1919 at Eureka, SD
      1. Christina Bertsch, b. 30 September 1854 at Bergdorf, d. 13 January 1856
      2. Elisabetha Bertsch [B116], b. 5 July 1856 at Bergdorf, m. Johann Leicht, 13 February 1879 at Bergdorf, m. Christian Leicht, 23 October 1879 at Bergdorf, d. 31 May 1943 at Eureka, SD
      3. Johannes Bertsch, b. 13 February 1859 at Bergdorf [Two independent extractions indicate Johannes was born on this date. Was there also an unrecorded twin sister?- Later: The birth entry has been reexamined. The name given is clearly Johannes and the sex is indicated as male. The sponsors were Johannes Wolf, Kol., Luisa Bertsch, and Magd. Rau. Usually, for a male child there would be two male sponsors and one female sponsor. Likewise, for a female child there would be two female sponsors and one male sponsor. The makeup of the sponsors would indicate that this was a female birth. Conclusion: The recorder must have entered the name Johannes by mistake and then went on to make the second mistake of indicating a male child. This is clearly Louise and Johannes never existed.]
      4. Louise Bertsch - To USA 1885, b. 13 February 1859 at Bergdorf, m.
