Looking for Litzel from Switzerland

Long Beach
United States
Hit dead end trying to find parents of Catherine Litzel. She was born in Pennsylvania in 1820. Parents are from Switzerland. Don't know when they immigrated to U.S.
Various spelling of last name have not made it easy.
She married Samuel Sisler in the U.S.
Just posting a bit of background on the family.

Catharine Sisler F 26 Pennsylvania
William Sisler M 8 Pennsylvania

Ronald have you found a marriage for Samuel and Catherine?

If not, maybe if we can find the marriage it might have her parents names noted.
We have the info on her marriage. I would like to know if Marriage certificate may solve the problem. Maybe it will have her Parents on it.

Im not sure what information would be on it, im not even sure if they had to officially register the marriages back then :confused:

Hopefully another member might be able to help. Sorry i couldnt :)
