I thought the original Honnigfort farm was in Meppen. My Grandfather and his brother John gave there piece of land to their sisters when they left Germany. They did not realize that a woman could not own land, and from what we were told the person that took over that land took on the name of Honigfort so as to acquire this piece of land. Is this the same piece of land and is this person related to us.
