READ THE EXCITING HISTORY OF THE MIESSES About The Book The Miesse book has been many years in the making. The Miesse Family Tree began with the works of Ezra Miesse, George A. Katzenberger, Milton Arld, and Anthony J. Ruble who encouraged their families to keep good records. Ezra, George, and Anthony each compiled a self-published book. As Dorothy Ruble Hudson traveled around the country in search of genealogical roots many amazing surprises were uncovered about her Miesse Family. New cousins were found including Mary Harrell-Sesniak with whom Hudson decided to co-author the Miesse Book. While both researched all Miesse descendants the project was divided into two parts, each beginning with the adventurous life of their emigrant father, Johann Daniel Miesse. In Volume I, the reader will be fascinated by the exciting accounts of his sons, Jacob, Joseph, Abraham and their descendants as written by Dorothy Ruble Hudson in cooperation with Mary Harrell-Sesniak. With Hudson's assistance, Harrell-Sesniak wrote the enthralling legacies of Johann Daniel's children, Elizabeth, John, Daniel and their lines. Through the authors' different styles, the highly successful completion of this Miesse historical resource will be invaluable to descendants as they enjoy the rich collections of ancestral stories, documents and photos. In the spirit of their forefathers' dreams, the authors encourage readers to record their family history at the end of the book.
