My grandfather, Henry Bohnert, was from Lars, Germany. We believe he emmigrated to the United States through New York in the late 1800's. He was a baker in New Jersy and married Marie Entenmann. His children were Henry, William, John, Frederick August, Wilhelmina, Marie. It is possible that my grandfather , Henry, was Fredrick's brother, hence the naming of one of his children: Frederick.
