I a looking for information on the origin of the Surname Naething.The family was believed to be immigrated from Alsace-Lorraine. The earliest ancestor I have found was listed in the NY 1860 directory as John Naething. Others settled in the NY city and MO area. We know that the name Naething is not correct, however there was some language communication errors upon entering the county and this was the closest spelling they could manage. Any help would be greaty appreciated.
