Johann Evangeline Grumm
I am searching for a friend, enclosed is her letter:
"I am not of German descent; I am Austrian!!!!!!!
I was going thru some of Mama & Daddy's things yesterday; came upon my grandfather's naturalization papers;I had glanced at it before, but this time I read it;Johann Evangeline Grumm -- he changed it to John --was Austrian!!!!!
He wound up in Elmore County, Alabama.
I found his name last year on the Ellis Island registry; the boat he came in on showed he was from Austria, but I thought it was because he came from my great-grandmother's house.Gertrude had remarried when my great-grandfather died.I had always been told she had moved to Austria -- wrong; she always lived there.Now one new her last name, but her last name was MOLKA."
Anyone recognize these names?
Please respond to email@example.com with this subject line, Johann Evangeline Grumm.
Thank you in advance.
