Thank you for the information. I have visited with my fathers aunte that is 84 yrs. old and she said that she was told from her father that we had Von before our name. my great great grandfather left prussia, germany in 1873 and landed in new york then traveled to New Braunfels, Tx. I have a picture of my gr. gr. grandfather and mother. He is dressed in starched shirt with fancy tie and has a pocket watch and chain across his chest. His suit has a vest and nice pants. She has lace on her dress and has a pin on her dress. They are standing infront of a small table that looks like the family bible and a cross is laying on the top of. I should be getting the film of naturalzation papers next week, hoping to find what part of prussia they came from. they started up an iron works, steel and hardware bussiness in the Sedro-woolley, Wa. area around 1889-1895. So, maybe they did the same kind of work in Prussia and had some money to start a new bussiness when they got settled. I am hoping that someone will read this and it will make some sence to them. thank you, gayle
