I am so thrilled to read this posting. You have given me some information which I did not know about my g-grandfather Nicholas Bach's first wife. I do indeed see a reference to the name Lewis in an account given my uncle David Wurschmidt by Nick's youngest son Henry sometime in the late 1950s. Henry believed that Nicholas' parents are buried in Langenfeld; his father also named Nicholas. He said that Langenfeld and Malmedy are near to Aachen. Nicholas' youngest daughter Katherine married Cornelius Wurschmidt in Grand Forks, ND. They are my paternal grandparents.
