Just found your message and I am sure we are distantly related. My father Eugen was born in 1899 in Oberheinriet,Wuert.and his father hailed from Loewenstein. I was told by my relatives that a number of Sammets and relations had migrated to the States in the 1800s. I moved to Canada in 1950.
If you can shed some light into our past let me know.
