It has been awhile, so do not remember what I told you about my family from Germany, but know that they left from the port of Bremen in Germany to The USA. They came in 1881 to Baltimore, MD and then on to WI to buy some land. He was said to come from Schwartzenburg Saxony, Germany, but could not find him there, so must have been born in some suburb close by. His father was a Minor. Hope this helps.
