I am looking for history farther back than Karl. He and his brother, August Friederich Johann Ernst, moved to Freistad, WI, around 1850 from Regenwalde, Pommern, Prussia. Karl and August married respective sisters, Maria and Johanna Schenzel. This is all I know about them except for Karl is my g-g-g-grandfather. I am the daughter of Karl, Wilhelm John Albert, Emil Christian, Howard Emil, Steven Howard. Any history further back about Karl's family would be appreciated, as well as any facts about Karl himself.
