Hallo Karen,

Its interesting for me that an uncle of your gg-grandfather ROESLER was a ships Captain.

Now, the stepfather of my g-grandmother Wilhelmine JOSEPH was a Heinrich ROESLER/RÖSLER (b. ???, d. 1927). Wilhelmine herself married into a barge-owner family with ships in Brandenburg and in East-Prussia.

Anything of it familiar to you?

Kind regards,
