HI, Thanks for the note. My Wiese's came from Prussia, but as far as we can tell went right to the west side of MI near Muskegon. I believe there is another branch that settled in Wisconsin too. The oldest Wiese I have was Karl born in Buchwalde West Prussia in 1863. He was married to Paulina Spink I believe but have no proof that she was also born in Buchwalde. Hope this helps.
