|J. E. Eggert left Hamburg, Germany, and arrived in New York in November, 1882. He moved to Chicago for three years, them to Texas, where he remained.|
I am trying to find more information about his life in Germany and hope to put it into historical context.
The surnames I am looking into are:Eggert, Soll, Hajek, Windel, Scheel, and Biering, the latter two being my mother's family.
