Martin and Louise (Oertwig) Sasse


The church records from Nahausen are available up to about 1835. The later books have been lost, or were hidden at the time of the wars and have not been found. Therefore we have not been able to determine the parents of this Martin Sasse. After he completed his mandatory military service, he came to the United States and brought his family directly to Fayette County, Illinois, suggesting that he had some connection to the other Oertwig and Sasse families there, families that had come from Nahausen in the previous decades.
