My grandfather, George Trager, married Bridget Curleyon Aug.9, 1886 at the Cathedral of the Assumption in Louisville, Ky. His father was listed as John Trager (with umlaut) and his mother Margaret Wiesen. George was naturalized on Oct. 4, 1897 and the record noted that he was born in Bavaria. George had at least nine children including a Michael and John, his eldest. I am not sure how this fits with your info but am interested in learning more. Thanks.
