Johann Doerfler born 1844 Germany
I'm trying to find out information on Johann Doerfler born in Germany, Neudrosselfeld, Bayern Kreis Germany.He attended seminary in Switzerland and came to America (Tx) in 1874.I would like to find his family in Germany.He married Salome Schwander once in Texas. She was from Colmar, Alsace Lorrain.
Johann was a Lutheran pastor his whole life in America.
Family story goes that he was an orphan.I'm not too sure I believe that.Anyone out there have any info on the Doerfler family in the area of this German town?I would like to make a connection in Germany before my father in law passes away.Johann rarely if ever talked of his German heritage.
