yes i feel there could be a connection but like you ihave no concrete evidence. My father(Werner Albert Karl Gaudian) was a german Paratrooper and captured my a american soldier and was a POW WW11 in America then moved to England/Wales where he met my Mother Who is Welsh His great grandfather A Johann Horn (1802-1879) married a Henrietta Engfer (24/03/1819-12/11/1879) but have no record of where born Except Pommeriania Then i have her father listed as a Daniel Engfer(1768c-1822c) but again no record of where born Except Pommeriania Im presuming that they came from Neustettin, Pommern area as my other families where from - Soltnitz,Neustettin. Peilburg,Neustettin. Gross Schwarzsee,Neustettin.
Thank you again if i do unearth and other info i will Let you know Dave (David Karl Gaudian)
