i am answering from germany, from geesthacht -near hamburg-.
My grandmother comes from prussia from a location called "Loncken" or so. Her name was Amanda. She was born 11 June 1898. At the end of world war II she comes over to hamburg. There she lives until 1985 (when she dies). Her sister Olga and Lena were living here too.
I know that at the end of the 19th century some plegers went to america. So it is possible that we are related.
