We had a family reunion this past weekend on my mother's side,
the Halvorsons. It was nice to see everyone again.
Perhaps you can forward this to Lilliane, as I do not have her email
address. ((I printed out and forwarded - FP))
I stumbled across the following web site- it lists
Luxembourg soldiers in Napoleon's army:
Luxembourg soldiers in Napoleon's army
It lists Guillaume Pletschette, B. 24MAY1790 in Brattert
(not sure what the other information listed translates to).
This Guillaume appears to be one of Lilliane's ancestors as follows:
---------------- PLETSCHETTE Brattert ------------ last updated: May 01, 2001
Pletschet Bernard * 1767, Neunhausen +15-2-1843, Brattert
oo Thilmany Elisabeth * 27.6.1765, Brattert +8-6-1845, Brattert
oo 4-2-1789 Eglise de Rindschleiden (Parregester Rindschleiden)
1. ---------- Brattert
Plettschette Gul. baptisé 24-5-1790, paroisse Rindschleiden
2. ---------- Brattert
Pletschette Joa Petrus, baptisé 7-10-1791, paroisse Rindschleiden
Pletschet Antonius (Antoine) * 1795, Brattert + 28-06-1869, Brattert
baptisé 4-3-1795, paroisse Rindschleiden
oo Reding Anne-Marie * + 31-12-1866, Brattert
Could this Guilaume & Joa be Freda's ancestors?
8. Guil Pletchette (Freda's ancestor?)
Guil Pletchette *approx 1800 in Alsace-Lorraine
(perhaps Platz, Luxembourg?) + 1876 in Chicago, IL
To whom Guil was married is unknown. He and his brother,
John, were both said to be born in the Alsace-Lorraine
region and emigrated to USA. It is said he and his wife
Had at least 2-sons (George & John), and 1-daughter
(name nknown). It is thought this daughter married a
Mr. Henry Schupenitz (1868-1958) and lived in the Carroll,
Iowa area. Henry (and perhaps his wife as well) is buried in
Carroll Cemetery, NE corner, Lot 154, Space 10. Records
indicate Mrs. John Goffinet of Carroll, IA, paid the Perpetual Care.
8. John (Jean/Joa?) Pletchette *approx 1790's? +1858 in Luxemburg, IA
I assumed John was older than Guil because his son was older than
Guil's, and because he died first. To whom John was married is
unknown, nor how many children they had besides Peter.
Working on the Family Tree is now very slow.
New information trickles in, but nothing tying us all together yet.
Just possibilites and theories!
QUESTIONS II: Would somebody know of the origine of the Petschette's
in Luxembourg? ____________________________________________

We are interested to find out about the origine of the name Pletschette
and also from where the Pletschette's came from. Following links
1) Septfontaines - Coat of Arms
Jean Pletschette, bailli de Septfontaines, 21-III-1635
2) Neunhausen - The grave stone of the Pletschette family in Neunhausen.
The gravestone no longer at the cimetry, but we had the opportunity
to make photos of the stone.
3) Medernach or the farm Pletschette - Coat of Arms
following link shows some info on the farm Pletschette
following link points to the coat of arms of Medernach,
where the coat of arm of the Pletschette family is referred to:
Information received up to now..........
Information on the origine of the name, or the first Pletschette's in
Luxembourg, would be much appreciated

I have been reviewing some of the Wahl/Differdange information, and
wondering if you can confirm this:
I'm not sure, but will try to find out, Fernand
According to Felix Pletschette's Ahnen Pass, his ancestors were:
.William (Guillaume) Pletschette in Heispelt (wagonmaster/carpenter)
(This could possibly be the older brother of my Great-Grandfather
Nicolas *1827, whose name was Wilhelm *1820, or it could be
Nicolas' younger brother, Jean Guillaume *1835
- or then again it could be neither
- what do you think?)
oo Maria Reuter
..Peter Pletschette *1850 in Heispelt (wagonmaster/carpenter)
oo Elizabeth Ruppert *1849
(daughter of Anton Ruppert & Charlotte F.Rief)
...Johann Peter *1881 in Heispelt
oo Elizabeth Lommer *1882 in Bowen
(daughter of Johann Lommer & Katharina Ruck)
....Felix Pletschette *1910 in Marienau/Lorraine
Now if the following is also true:
Memories of the passion plays of Differdingen
14. 15. 16 and 17 August 1947 on the hills of the " Thillebierg "
and Alphonse Joseph called Jérôme Pletschette
1912-10-25 in Marienau with Forbach
+ 1986-03-05 in Differdingen
son and one of the eight children of the wagners
Carpenter Jean Pierre Pletschette and his wife Elise
The Jean Pierre Pletschette & his wife Elise mentioned above,
would have been
Johann Peter *1881 in Heispelt & Elizabeth Lommer *1882 in Bowen, right?
Together they had the following 7 of 8-children:
1. Jean-Pierre *1905
2. Emile *1909
3. Felix *1910
4. Alphonse Joseph called Jerome Pletschette
5. Maria *1915
6. Francois Franzy *19?? - +1944/45
7. Caroline *19__
8. Germaine *19__ +19__
Now if all this is true, the William (Guillaume) Pletschette, who was
married to Maria Reuter
had another son named Nik Pletschette who married Anne-Marie Ruppert
another daughter of
Anton Ruppert & Charlotte F. Rief. So in effect Nik Pletschette & Peter
married the Ruppert sisters, Anne-Marie & Elizabeth.
Which is all part of the following, correct?
Again, I'm not sure, but will try to find out, Fernand
