JAMES GEORGE REITZ worked for the Aerocoach Bus Company and the family lived in Grand Prairie, Texas from 1944 to 1948. After returning to Chicago, James was sent to Cuba and helped establish a bus transit system for the Cuban government, overseeing their maintenance program. The duration of time of time he spent in is Cuba is not known, but upon his return to the states the family settled in Lansing, Illinois, a suburb about fifteen miles to the south of Chicago. James and Genevieve divorced about 1951, the children staying with their mother, and James going to Muskegon, Michigan as a mechanical engineer for Continental Motors. There he designed multi-fuel engines for the U.S. Army, working in such places as Berea, Ohio; Louisville, Kentucky (Fort Knox); Indianapolis, Indiana, and retired about 1971 to Phoenix, Arizona where he died of heart failure in 1973. He is buried in Lakewood, Ohio. Although he was a quiet man of small physical stature he was large of stature in his professional accomplishments.

JAMES N. REITZ was the oldest son of James G. and Genevieve Reitz. He quit school at about sixteen years of age to help his mother raise his two younger brothers. He married (1) Shirley Gruneveld in Lansing, Illinois and divorced shortly thereafter. He was drafted into the U.S. Army and served from 1959-1961. After his discharge he married (2) Judith Ann Minninger and they had four sons, all born in Hammond, Indiana. In August of 1974 the family moved from Lansing, Illinois to Griffith, Indiana where Judith was still residing at 1997.

James was raised a Master Mason in September 1973 at Arcadia Lodge in Lansing, Illinois along with his youngest brother, Paul, which was a first in the history of the lodge. James was an average guy who worked hard all his life as a truck driver, and always seemed to make ends meet. He never accomplished any greatness, except in the eyes of all those who knew and loved him. He always made sure that his family came first and that all his children got the best education possible and was especially proud of his four sons.

WILLIAM RICHARD REITZ was the second son of James G. and Genevieve Reitz. His name was changed, at about five years of age, to Fred William Reitz at the request of his grandfather, Fred G. Reitz, probably so that he could have a namesake grandson. He entered the U.S. Army in 1958, spent time in Germany, and finished his service with his brother James at Fort Riley, Kansas, and was honorably discharged in1961. He married Sandra Schultz on 14 Oct 1961. They resided in Lansing, Illinois until 1972, then moved to Griffith, Indiana. Fred was raised a Master Mason in 1969 at Arcadia Lodge in Lansing, Illinois. He was a member of the Scottish Rite and a Shriner at Orak Temple in Hammond, Indiana. He worked hard most of his life as an over-the-road truck driver, but always managed to find the time to be involved in his childrens' activities, coaching little league, softball, etc. He passed away from lung disease on 8 Feb 1993 in Munster, Indiana, and is buried at Chapel Lawn Cemetery in Schereville, Indiana.

Mr. Resseguie served as first lieutenant in the war of 1812, and took part in the battles of Oswego and Sackett's Harbor, and was honorably discharged at the close of the war, which was just before his removal to Rome. He was Assessor of the town of Van Buren for twenty-eight years, and Supervisor for four years. He was a very successful farmer, and amassed a handsome property. Of a charitable disposition he lent a helping hand to many, and died greatly lamented by all. He was married to Lucy Avery on 11 Feb 1810. (Source: The Resseguie Family - compiled by John E.

Timothy Resseguie was born on 28 Dec 1754 in Ridgefield, Conn. He died on 19 Jan 1838 in Verona, Oneida Co, NY. The Resseguie Family: served in the Revolutionary War and married after his return from the service. He moved to Ballston Spa, NY, then to Northhampton, then to Milton, then to Verona.

He was a soldier in the British army. Thus are families often divided in a civil war. When an old man, Timothy Resseguie, at the request of his grandson, George E. Gray, wrote a journal of his experience and adventures as a British soldier. It is quite lengthy and closely written; some of it is almost illegible. A synopsis of his narrative is written in the publication "Experiences of the French Huguenots in America - The King's Refugees", Journal of American History, by COLONEL JAMES TOMPKINS WATSON, written about 1908. He was married to Abigail LEE on 5 Jun 1785. (Sources: The Resseguie Family - compiled by John E. Morris, 1888, Call No. CS71.R435; and "Experiences of the French Huguenots in America - The King's Refugees", Journal of American History, by Colonel James Tompkins Watson)

father: Henry, ? II, King of England(1133 - 1189)
mother: Aquitaine, Eleanor of Dutchess of Aquitaine(1122 - 1204)
RICHARD I, called Coeur de Lion or Lion-Hearted (1157-99), King of England (1189-99), third son of King Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine, born in Oxford. When he was an infant, Richard was betrothed to a daughter of the French king Louis VII, and in 1172 he was given the duchy of Aquitaine in France, his mother's inheritance. His early years were spent in warring against his father to protect his own interests; he emerged a brilliant soldier.

In 1189 he became King of England and shortly thereafter set out on the Third Crusade. He was accompanied by the young Philip II, King of France, son of Louis VII. The Crusade proved a failure almost from the start, mainly because of the lack of harmony between the two kings. In Sicily Richard quarreled with Philip and refused to marry Philip's sister as planned. Instead he married Berengaria of Navarre on Cyprus, which he conquered in 1191. After capturing Acre from the Saracens that same year, Richard executed 2700 Muslim prisoners of war. It was Richard's personal valor in the Holy Land, however, rather than his ruthlessness, that made his name famous in legend. Conflict over policy in the Holy Land resulted in a break between the two, and Philip returned to France alone. Richard spent months in indecisive contests against Saladin, Sultan of Egypt and Syria, before making a truce by which Jerusalem was left in Saladin's hands. Captured en route to England by Leopold V, Duke of Austria (1157-94), Richard was handed over to Holy Roman Emperor Henry IV. He was released in 1194 only after paying a heavy ransom. Richard returned to England and there made peace with his brother, John, later King of England, who in his absence had been conspiring with Philip to usurp the English throne. Leaving the government of England to the care of the able administrator Hubert Walter, archbishop of Canterbury (d. 1205), Richard went to France in 1194 to wage war against the French king. Campaigns in defense of his European lands continued for five years. Victor in most of the warfare in which he engaged, Richard was fatally wounded by an arrow during an insignificant skirmish in 1199.

As king, Richard had chosen able ministers, to whom he left most matters of administration. Under his rule, however, England suffered heavy taxation, levied to support his expeditions. Sometimes cruel, sometimes magnanimous, and always courageous, Richard was well versed in the knightly accomplishments of his age and was also a poet. He was to become the hero of many legendary tales. He was introduced by his mother, Eleanor, to princess Berengaria of Navarre. On his mother's request Richard agreed to marry the princess, as the region of Navarre was a useful territory straddling the Pyrenees. He took the Princess with him on his travels, and Berengaria was crowned Queen of England when they put ashore in Cyprus. Richard was homosexually inclined and saw very little of his Queen, and left no son.

Richard II (1367-1400), King of England (1377-99), whose reign was marked by national disunity and civil strife.

A younger son of Edward, Prince of Wales (the Black Prince), and Joan, called the Fair Maid of Kent. Richard was born January 6, 1367, in Bordeaux, France. He was created prince of Wales in 1376, the year of his father's death, and was placed in the care of his uncle John of Gaunt, duke of Lancaster. In 1377, on the death of his grandfather, King Edward III, Richard became ruler of England, then a country devastated by plague and oppressed by heavy taxes, the result of a war with France. Parliament, which had obtained greater power in the last years of Edward III's reign, now sought to secure control of the government, but was opposed by John of Gaunt and his followers. The speedy suppression of Tyler's Rebellion in 1381 was largely the result of Richard's courage and daring. A year later, at the age of 15, Richard married Anne of Bohemia, daughter of the Holy Roman emperor Charles IV, and began to seek the downfall of the great nobles who controlled Parliament and prevented him from acting independently. Led by Richard's uncle Thomas of Woodstock, duke of Gloucester, in 1388 a coterie of noblemen known in history as the lords appellant "appealed" or accused Richard's adherents of treason, banishing some and having others executed. The following year Richard, with the help of John of Gaunt, succeeded in asserting his authority.

Trying to reestablish English authority in Ireland, Richard led an expedition to the country in 1394; that same year his queen died. In 1396 a marriage treaty was concluded between Richard and a French princess, Isabella. In 1397 Richard had Gloucester arrested and imprisoned at Calais, where he died, perhaps murdered. He also exiled John of Gaunt's son, Henry Bolingbroke, duke of Hereford, who later became Richard's successor as Henry IV, and executed or banished others of the lords appellant. On his return from a second military expedition to Ireland in 1399 Richard found that Bolingbroke had returned from exile and placed himself at the head of a formidable army. Richard was captured by Bolingbroke in Wales and brought captive to London, where on September 30, 1399, he formally resigned his crown. On the following day his abdication was ratified by Parliament, which then confirmed Bolingbroke as King Henry IV. Richard was secretly confined in Pontefract Castle, where he either died of starvation or was murdered in February 1400.

Richard III (1452-85), king of England (1483-85), of the house of York.

Richard was born on October 2, 1452, in Fotheringhay Castle, youngest son of Richard Plantagenet, 3rd duke of York, and was named duke of Gloucester in 1461. Richard fought for his brother, later King Edward IV, under the Yorkist banner during the Wars of the Roses. On the death of Edward in 1483, Richard took over the care of Edward's young heir, King Edward V, and the administration of the kingdom. Richard soon overthrew the unpopular party of the Woodvilles, relatives of the queen mother, who aimed to control the government. Parliament then declared that Richard was the rightful king, on the grounds that the marriage of Edward IV with Elizabeth Woodville had been illegal because he had contracted earlier to marry another woman. Richard, to ensure his position as king, confined Edward and his brother Richard to the Tower of London. There, some time afterward, both nephews were put to death. Except for later supposition, no substantial evidence exists that Richard had them assassinated.

The new king courted popularity with considerable success. He promoted English interests abroad and involved himself in domestic reform. Following the death of the young princes, however, public favor turned away from Richard and toward Henry, earl of Richmond, who was the head of the rival house of Lancaster. On August 7, 1485, Henry landed at Milford Haven, Wales, collecting allies as he advanced toward England. Richard hastened to meet him, and the hostile armies faced each other on Bosworth Field. Richard fought valiantly but was defeated and slain, and the earl of Richmond became Henry VII, the first Tudor king of England.

Although Richard, the last king of the house of York, did usurp the throne, little doubt exists that his unscrupulousness has been overemphasized by his enemies and by Tudor historians seeking to strengthen the Lancastrian position. His baseness is strongly exaggerated in Shakespeare's play Richard III.

Robert, ? I, the Bruce, King of Scotland (1274 - 1329)

d. 7 JUN 1329

father: Bruce, Robert(>1240 - 1304)
mother: Margaret, Countess of Carrick(~1243 - 1292)
Bruce, Robert (1274-1329), liberator, and, as Robert I, king of Scotland (1306-29). He was originally named Robert de Bruce, and to distinguish him from his father and grandfather, who had the same name, he is often referred to as Robert de Bruce VIII. He is also called Robert the Bruce. As earl of Carrick he paid homage to King Edward I of England, who, in 1296, defeated King John de Baliol and thereafter refused to acknowledge another king of Scotland. Bruce later abandoned Edward's cause and joined other Scottish leaders in taking up arms for the independence of his country. In 1299, the year after the Scottish patriot Sir William Wallace was defeated by Edward at Falkirk, Bruce, then still in favor with Edward, was made one of the four regents who ruled the kingdom in the name of Baliol. In 1305 he was one of those consulted in the decision to make Scotland a province of England. In 1306 he met an old enemy, the Scottish patriot John Comyn, who was the nephew of Baliol; a quarrel occurred, and Bruce stabbed Comyn. Bruce proclaimed his right to the throne, and on March 27, 1306, he was crowned king at Scone.

Bruce was deposed, however, in 1307 by Edward's army and forced to flee to the highlands and then to the little island of Rathlin on the coast of Antrim (now in Northern Ireland). In his absence all his estates were confiscated, and he and his followers were excommunicated. He continued to recruit followers, however, and in less than two years he wrested nearly all of Scotland from the English. Bruce again defeated the English in 1314 in the Battle of Bannockburn (see Bannockburn, Battle of), twice invaded England, and in 1323 concluded with King Edward II of England a truce for 13 years. After the accession of King Edward III in 1327, war again broke out, and the Scots won again. In 1328 they secured a treaty recognizing the independence of Scotland and the right of Bruce to the throne.

In his later years Bruce was stricken with leprosy and lived in seclusion at Cardross Castle, on the northern shore of the Firth of Clyde, where he died. He was succeeded by his son, David II. Bruce's nephew, Robert II, who succeeded David, was the first king of the Stuart house of English and Scottish royalty.

father: Walter, High Steward of Scotland(1292 - 1326)
mother: Bruce, Marjorie(~1300 - 1317)
Robert II (of Scotland) (1316-90), king of Scotland (1371-90), and founder of the Stuart dynasty in Scotland and England. His mother was Marjorie (died 1316), daughter of the Scottish king Robert Bruce; his father was Walter, hereditary steward of Scotland, in charge of administering the Crown revenues and the king's household. In 1318 the Scottish parliament passed a decree providing that if Robert Bruce died without sons, his grandson should be his successor; a son, later King David II, was born to Bruce in 1324. In 1326 Robert succeeded his father as steward of Scotland and in 1331 David was crowned king.

In the dynastic conflict that ensued between England and Scotland, David was exiled to France in 1333 and Robert served as his regent until his return in 1341. After the Battle of Neville's Cross in 1346 David was taken to England as a captive, and Robert again became regent. When David returned, he accused Robert of desertion and named King Edward III of England as his successor. Robert rebelled in 1363 and was captured and imprisoned until shortly before David's death in 1371; he then became king according to the provisions of the decree of 1318. During his reign, Scotland was twice invaded by the English, in 1384 and in 1385. Because of old age and infirmity, Robert did not aid the Scottish barons in resisting these invasions, nor did he join in their retaliatory expedition against the English in 1388.

Robert had the misfortune to be born ten years before his father and mother married. In a curious twist, perhaps through a sign of affection for his father but more readily through superstition, he was baptized John but ruled as Robert.

Robert III came to the throne at the age of 53 and faced the menace of the Highlanders who were not beyond ravaging the lowland areas of Scotland. He handed the effective regency over to his brother in the capacity of guardian against these clans. He entitled his brother 'Duke of Albany. At the same time he created his own son the Duke of Rothesay.

The Duke of Rothesay was killed in suspicious circumstances after a quarrel with the Duke of Albany following an invasion of Scotland by Henry IV of England. This left Robert's one remaining son, James, as the heir to the throne. It is said that the shock of the news that James had been captured by the English whilst on route to France contributed to the death of Robert in 1406.

He had been married just once, for 34 years to Annabella, daughter of Sir John Drummond. The couple had six children; David, Robert, James, Margaret, Mary, Elizabeth and Egidia.
