My Grandmother was Mary (Zimmerman) Roesch. Her mother was Margaretha Magdelina Suess who married Christoph Frederick Zimmermann in 1861. Margaretha Magdelina Suess was given a towel in about 1855 made by her father Jacob Frederick Suess with her initials M.S. in red on the towel as shown below. Jacob Frederick Suess raised the flax, spun and wove the linen cloth towel for his daughter my ancestor Margaretha Magdelina Suess.
