I am researching the KREIS family. Jacob KREIS snr and his wife Elizabeth SONNTAG gave birth to Jacob KREIS jnr on 18th February 1822 at Ernsthausen, Germany. Jacob jnr married Katherine TRIPP in 1860 and with her and Jacob's two children from his first marriage they migrated to Australia on "Johan Cesar". They arrived in Queensland, Australia in 1863. I am willing to share my information.
