Don't know if there is any connection, but I have a Katharina Bodmer, who left Baden-Werttemberg and arrived in Kansas in approximately 1874. She married an Anton Brasch, who came from Lemberg, Styria, Austria. I don't know much more about her. Have been told they departed from Belgium to come to the United States. I don't know if they were together when they left there or met somewhere enroute.
