My great-grandfather was born in Darmstadt, Germany on Oct 28 1879, he emigrated to the US (Baltimore) sometime between 1900-1908. he married Anna Greise (Greece or Griss not exactly sure on the spelling) in 1908. I was told by my grandmother that he did serve in the German Army sometime before coming to the US. I am trying to find his parents names. I have tried contacting the archives in Darmstadt but have had no luck. After marrying he and his family moved to Tamaqua, PA where he worked as a coal miner. He and Anna had 8 children total. He died on May 24, 1933 in Tamaqua, is is buried there at St John's Cemetery.
