Rettinger, Reddinger, Redinger - Emmanual Rettinger

Karl - I am a descendant of Emmanuel also. Between my father and I we have research this family for 30 years. My father Robert Redinger and me Robin Redinger in the 90's and 2000's. I have so much info back to Heinrich's arrival on the St. Andrew's ship in 1750. This past fall I was at the Natinoal Archives and I got to see the Oath of Alligence swearting the loyality to the king. I had a genealogist with me and she said that a scribe wrote his name for him as he must have been sick as there was a 'mark' next to his name to signify he couldn't write - probably too sick. I have tried so many things to find information on Emmanuel and he is just elusive! I know he was a medical Dr in 1880 and I found in a few census but not much on him. During my fathers hunt for information in the 70's he visited and Emmanuel ancestor who thought the medical bag was in the attic!!! Oh how that would have been nice to have after all this hunting. The lady was elderly so my dad didn't feel he could ask for it. Do you have any details on Emmanual other than census information? Like why was he a farmer, then a doctor and then back to a farmer? I couldn't find him in any medical schools or associations.
I would love to share more information with you. Please email me if you get this email
