This is a very old thread but maybe some of you are still around.I am descended from a Mary Ehret (b ~1839) in Erie PA who is the wife of my g-g uncle Michel Depinet.The Depinets came from Ruelzheim in Germany; the Ehrets come from Germany as well.
Later the 1930 census shows a Frank P Ehret (b ~1871) and his sister Mary M. Ehret (b. ~1875) both living in Erie PA
Can anyone add any of the links among these people or to your Ehrets?
Another branch of my family, the Bartels, lived in Canton, Stark county Ohio in the 1830s when they first came to America; they subsequently moved to Erie PA.Anton Bartel appears to have met and married Mary Madelein Rantz from Hamilton county Ohio (adj to Stark)
