I hope so! It wld be so exciting. Do you have any other info on your ancestor? WHo his parents were, where he was from exactly? My Simon Petrus' parents were Simon Diehm and Appollonia Kiesecker who were married in 1825 in Dertingen, Wertheim, Germany. They also emigrated to the USA in Dec 1853 (no trace) although we know Simon (the father) died c.1859 in the USA. Simon Petrus was born 17 April 1826.
