My Grandfather was Henry Jacob Roesch married to Mary (Zimmerman) Roesch. His father Jacob Friedrich Roesch was a weaver, tailor and shoemaker. He made his own wedding shirt. He grew the flax, spun and wove the linen cloth, and sewed the shirt. This hand spun, hand woven linen wedding shirt was made by my ancestor Jacob Friedrich Roesch for his wedding to Christina Rapp in 1868.
