- I have some information on my family. Would appreciate some help in locating a possible place of birth. I will try to list the info that I have.
Friedrich Johan Herzog (c-1862( Germeny) to 1930 (Indiana, USA) ) md Susanna Weiss in USA. Friedrich Johan arrived in USA around 1880.
F.J.'s parents were Friedrick (1832 Germany - 1910 Chicago, Illinois) and Wilhelmina (1837 Germany - 1900 Chicago, Illinois)
Friedrick's father was Chris.
From various USA documents I have pob as Germany/Prussia/Rheinland-Pfals/Mettschulen.
From a letter written to my grandfather by his mother, Susanna Weiss Herzog, there is mention of Twin Hills or Twin Cities. I am not sure if this is a place or a previous family name before "Herzog". The letter also mentions and describes a coat of arms which was given to the family.
Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated.
It seems like the only messages on this list come from "many-roads". Are there other people on this list? Just wondering.
