Looking for geneology info on my great grandfather.
Carl A. Preyer, b. July 25, 1863, Pforzheim, Baden, Germany. Married Grace Havens May 2, 1887. Died, KC, Kansas, but was living in and buried in Lawrence, Kansas.He taught piano at KU for like 39 years.I have a copy of the KU press release if anyone is interested.My mother has some original music.
Carl's second wife was Francis Havens.Oldest son Frank has living relatives in the Denver area I think.
His father was:
Jean Heinrich Konrad Preyer, b. 1837 Married Marie (Maria)Carolina Heinz (Ketchup family) in Pforzheim, Germany. Died in Leavenworth Kansas.
Jean had a brother Christian or Christiaan that also came to the US.
They may have come to Germany from the Netherlands.
