Juliana Metz was born about 1836 in Bavaria, Ger. She married Andreas Hofgesang (1831-Bavaria). Andreas and Juliane Hofgesang arrived in the USA on February 18, 1868. They were aboard the ship, “Marie” with a leave port of Bremen. They are both listed as farmers with Andreas being 37 (1831) and Juliane being 32 (1836). With them were Pankratz, age 7; Ambrosius, age 5; and August, age 4. They also had a son Casper who was 12 at the time. They had a few more children born in Louisville, KY. Andreas and Juliana both died and are buried in Louisville. I would like to trace the Hofgesang and Metz lines back further. My G-G aunt said that the two lines met a few more generations back. Thanks in advance for any information.
