Correction on Barbara BRAUN family history

The family did live on the Rhine, but in Baden, France. Barbara was raised Catholic, but after she married Nathan ROSS, became protestant. They were married in Columbia County, Ohio where Nathan was working on building the canal. After marriage they lived in Brush Valley, Indiana County, PA.


The style of her sleeves is of the early 1860s.
