Re: Loptien family, Preetz, Schleswig-Holstein
As close as I can get to that spelling is Lena "Loepentein"(spelling?) who married Peter Ruser from Holstein. (My grgrgrandparents)
Peter Ruser: b. 1/18/1849
married Lena "Loepentein" and they moved to Laholm, Sweden (1857?) and she died in 1901.They (I believe) started out in Kronbeck, Probstei, Holstein, Germany.
