My Grandpa is George Veit. Note the "e" in George. He immigrated to Chicago in the 30's. My Father, Walter Joseph Veit is his only son, and I am one of his 5 children.
I understand that George's Father is Matthew. My Grandfather lived in Chicago until 1945 and at that time moved to Littlefork, MN.
I can tell you much more about Georg"e" Veit, but I am not sure that this is the correct person.My grandfather came from a large family, one brother and one sister also immigrated to the US.He has a sister named Katy Molner in Germany (alive??) and her daughter is Gerlinde Molnar.My grand father gave me this her address around 1985. It "might" be the home my grandfather grew up at:
Gerlinde Monnar Gerading Post Windorf b Vilshofen 8359 N.b.Y West Germany
European Phone: 8541-5590 From US include 011-49
My Grandfathers Father is Matthew Veit.
I have just started tracing my lineage. Please let me know if you know of Matthew Veit and/or the names of his children.I think he died in Germany around WWII, but he did not die as a solder.He had a missing limb, (arm or leg), so he may have served in WWI.He had at least 2 sons die in WWII, I do not know their names.
