Just discovered a strong connection to Albert Frederick PRIEVE, who married Bertha Berndt in Germany before they entered USA through Philadelphia 1892.They went to Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Their children were:Gustave, George, Anna, Hermann and Lene (Helene?).Bertha died 1898 and Albert soon remarried to Anna TREICHEL, whose maiden name was BUNKE. She brought two sons to the marriage, who were Arthur and Erwin TREICHEL.
Albert PRIEVE had a brother who entered America several years before him, and his name was recorded August PRIEBE and his line continued to use it.I've also seen it written Priewe, etc. so it must not have been an easily Americanized name.
We have made contact with one of the August PRIEBE descendents and know some of their history.Our goal now is to locate heirs of the Albert and Bertha PRIEVE line to learn more of that family, and hope there are also photos they will share.
Our connection to Albert PRIEVE is through his their oldest son, Gustave.
