The very interesting story is about my great-grandfather who came over on the boat from Germany. They started out the trip with 10 children and the 2 parents but only 3 of the children made it to America. One of them was my great-grandfather. They named them the wrong thing when they got here, but they knew what it was supposed to be so they changed it back. My great-grandfather moved here and now has over 2,000 descendants. He made up for the ones lost on the ship. – Mary Jo
