A Peter Joos, distant cousin even back then, accompanied my great grandfather when he came to America in 1869 and Peter, I believe, settled in Grant County Wisconsin, where he apparently has numerous living descendant today. My great grandfather came west to California and his descendants now are located in the western states, Colorado, California, Nevada, and Utah. I know there were about thirteen people from the same village that migrated in 1869 by I would have to go back and review the ship manifest to see if any were from the Tuffli family.
