Many of us have tried for a long time to find a connection.Our Netts came from the Langenfeld/Welschenbach/Niederwelschenbach area of Germany.( We have this branch back to 1635)They settled in Johnsburg and St.Peter in Fond du Lac County. The other Netts came from the Kempenich area and settled around Marytown.My mother always told me we were not related to the "Marytown" Netts.Nett is not a common name in Germany or here in the U.S., so you'd think they must be connected. I have some Gerhartz (Gerards) in my tree, but only by marriage and I don't have village of origin for them. Let me know if you see any possible connection.
