Jean Flies was an older brother of my great-grandmother Anna Flies of Heffingen. Anna emigrated to Chicago and was married to Nicolas Junius from Pulvermuhl. They operated a green house on Chicago's north side. My uncle once told me that Anna might have had a brother in Milwaukee. I have been unable to verify. On the other hand, records provided by my cousin who lives in Heffingen indicate FLIES-LENTZ had a son Pierre born (abt 1888) and died (10-AUG-1976) in Luxembourg.
Ander Hatz's Emigrants et Remigrants Luxembourgeois de 1876 a 1900indicates a Jean Flies left Heffingen alone in 1882. That was a younger brother named Jean (born 1861) according to my family history records. My great-grandmother emigrated in 1884.
