I share lineage (and interest) with Richard - in the line of Lorenz Granacher.
Lorenz settled in Buffalo. According to several sources, including his first (1853, Buffalo) of three marriages, he was from Baden.
The second (1867) and third (1884) marriages (also in Buffalo) document the names of his parents. Unfortunately there is some inconsistency with the mother's name.
Father: Johannes (Kranacher - 1867; Granacher - 1884)
Mother: 1867: (defunctis) Maria Muhlhaupt ; 1884: Barbara Muhlhaupt.
Perhaps the 1846 immigration records indicated by Rene Granacher (above) do correspond to Lorenz, his parents and brother. I've no idea where they may have settled.
I have been trying to trace other Granacher lines in the Americas to see if there is possible connection. I would be eager to connect with anyone who may be able to shed light on this.
