Note: it's rumored that my grandfather started spelling his name differently when he arrived in the US before 1910. maybe due to difficulty in pronouncing it. I've seen it spelled as Geteon or Geton on either a house deeded to him in Cincinnati, Ohio or on a birth certificate of one of his children. He appearantly descended from Germany. It's also rumored that he may have left a family (Wife Sony and 5 children in Germany) behind when he departed.
Sources for Alexander George Gideon: GarysFamilyTree, Alexander George GIDEON arrived a few years before Anna Maria Prinz.
Sources for Anna Maria Prinz: GarysFamilyTree, Note: uncertain of any information on her parents and where she actually derived from. Last name could possibly be spelled differently. Supposedly she had a brother or uncle named Nicholas who lived in Cuba, and also a sister or aunt who lived in Chicago.
