Fredrick T. Reische was born 8/7/1865 in Springfield, Illinois. He emigrated to Sutter County, California in 1886 by way of train. He was a lifetime farmer, had seven children, and eighteen grandchildren.
His original farm size was 120 acres. It is currently owned an operated by his Great-Grandson, Eric Reische.
This information was submitted by Eric’s father, Laverne C. Reische.
An interesting side note about the Reische family: they are connected to the Ohleyer family. The Ohleyer family was extremely influential in early Sutter/Yuba history. Without them, California’s landscape would be unrecognizable today. I hope to investigate further to whom the Ohleyer property was left and if it makes up a portion of the modern Reische property.
