Reich FN: listed by the 1816 Kassel census (#94) without origin and said by KS:400 to be fromUC Polen.  The GCRA thinks they probably came from Posen Province alathough they search the records of some specific places and did not find this family; see their book for more.

ReicheimGL: the Buedingen ML says this was homeUC to the Meyer woman who married a Buchsbaum in 1766; by 1767 this couple was in Holstein (Mai&Marquardt#585); but other evidence makes it clear this was Reichelsheim, Erbach.

Reichle{Jakob, Johannes}FN: said by KS:401 to have come fromUC Sternenfels, Vaihingen [Amt], Wuerttemberg toUC Neudorf.  The GCRA found no record of these men in Neudorf.  See their book for more.

Reichmesser{Elisabeth}: was lving in Luzern in 1798 with no earlier colony indicated (Mai1798:Lz35) and she has not been found in any printed FSL; so she may well represent a Luzern first settler family.  In 1798 she is living as the likely 2nd wife of Lembach{Anton} who was said to have come from Lohr (Mai1798:Lk41).
