Who are the birth parents and where is the birth location of Charles Reichenbach born about 1829 in Prussia and died 1878 in Pittsburgh, PA.
Family lore spoken by my great grandfather Charles Reichenbach is that he and his brother were born in Prussia. They were in a military unit somewhere in Prussia and did not like it. They were either shanghaied or became a stowaway on board a sailing ship sometime in between 1850 and 1859 and landed in New York City. According to a census, my grandfather, Charles H. Reichenbach, was born in New York City in1865 and his oldest brother was born in New York City in 1860. Are there records of the various military units for each of the Prussian kingdoms that I could go through to see if he and his brother are listed?
