Re: Anna Preller M. Francis Reibold --OH
My mother's parents were Loretta Rose Preller and James Merrick Kearney.Loretta was Anna Preller's sister.That would make Anna Preller my great aunt! The story I've heard is that Anton Schauffler was somewhere around 16 yrs. old when he came over from Neustadt, Bavaria, Germany, and he took on the Preller name of the family he settled with.He became a carpenter's apprentice under the elder Preller.This is somewhat different than your info. so I'd be interested in hearing more.I'd also like a copy of the pic you have of Anton if possible.Keep in touch.
