LOOKING FOR CONNECTIONS TO MAJOR JOHN ANDRE
I am the 5 x great grandaughter of Johann Andre he lived in Offenbach. He was a composer of opera and light music and Keppelmeister to the King of Prussia. I believe that he is a relative of Major John Andre. It is mentioned in Robert McConnell Hatch's book "Major John Andre, a Gallant in Spy's clothing" visited his relative Johann Andre in Offenbach. I cannot find the connection, there is not much info about John's parents that can lead me any further in my search. I would be grateful if anyone can help.

Have many ancestors that emigrated to the USA, Canada and Australia. I have connections to 2 POTUS (Bush) through my 15th Great Grandmother Joane Golding who married John Coo (earlier spelling of the Coe family. Through this marriage came the Coes that emigrated to America. My Sparham relatives emigrated to Canada. I am also connected to Winston Churchill through his American mother whose 5 x Gt Grandfather was Robert Coe who emigrated (my 1 cousin 13 times removed. I am currently researching my link with Major John Andre.
