I'm a new subscriber. My name is James Vait. I was born in New Ulm. My
grandfather was Frank Vait from Ridgely township. His father was Franz Vait
or Frank Vait, Sr. Franz Vait was born in Bohemia in 1846. He married Anna
Tragner (also born in Bohemia) and they had a son, Frank, born in 1876.
Franz Vait Sr., had a sister in this country too. Her name was Theresia and she
was married to a Peichel.
I would be grateful for any information about the Vait, Tragner, or Peichel
