Thank you for your reply on Julius Louis Hampel. I doubt that this is the family branch that connects us. The Herman Hampel you listed is different from mine. My grandfather, Herman William Julius Hampel, was born in Erie, PA and died in Kansas City, MO. No known connection to anybody in Canada. Herman did have sisters named Clara and Anna, however. Julius Louis (great grandfather) died in Erie, PA. We can't seem to trace the place of his birth. At first we believed it was in Bayern, but then I have a document that says he renounced loyalty to the King of Prussia. That might coincide with your mention of Prussia to Silesia. Julius was listed as a passenger on the ship Borussia from Hamburg to N.Y. Arrived N.Y. 22 Sept. 1866. Don't know if this will help you at all. But, if you think of something else please let me know.
