Re: BRUNER/BRUNNERGeorge Adam Brunner.......
(Spelled)Brunner from Prussia to Argentina.
Was just browsing Germany/Prussia.
I knew this Brunner family were I was born and lived til 1947, Provinz of Chaco in Northern Argentina,inan areaapopulated by many Germans. We all were cotton plantation owners at that time. Don't know details from what town in Prussia/Germanythey came from.
Herr Brunner und Frau Brunner (thats how we
addressed them) had at least 10 children, in the 1920/1930's, at least 7 girls. They are bit older than me, but boy, them girls were pretty, with some freckles, which addded to their buty.
One of the sons, Christian Brunner, butregistered in Spanish as Cristian Prunner,
never changed it back. Cristian married my niece Lidia Wolter (mother's maiden name Scheidegger) and they had several children,
guess under Prunner name.
In1999, after 52 years I visited the area,
stillcotton area, but Cristianhad died and I missed my niece Lidia, because I arrived couple days late (by bus) and she had gone o a tour. But I met some their gron up sons, living on one of their original plantations.
Reason I write this is bacause you had an interesting Brunner story. I do not think I can get any info of their branch, since they never wrote me back, just plain farm folk, glad to see you... but not inclined tocommunicate not even by mail.
Nottrying to give a lesson, but Brunnercomes from Brunnen (a water/well, or "well maker") and Ibelieve Bruner might not be an original German surname.
My family tree is Wolter (gg.father Wilhelm, g.father Julius Eduard, father Friedrich who
moved to Argentina in 1924). Mother's side
Lidia Gogolin, g.mother Wilhelmine Seiler).
Bothside of my parents came from either East Prussia or German areas occupied by Russia or Poland after WW1.
I moved to USA in 1968 after the umptieth
military uprising during the 1950/1960s.
The rest of my wolter branch isstill down South.
By the way, I haveyetto find a Wolter related to my branch.I still cannot accept
that all those that stayed in East Prussia
perished WWII strugle.
Ijust did my first posting under www.wolter, genforum, Searchingfor Daniel Wolter Nr. 32.
Nice talking to you. God bless you,Federico G. Wolter
