My mother's mother's family were Kampfs who descended from Germany.

The first Kampf I have record of is John Christian Gottfried Kampf who married Marie Magdalene Wernike. They had a son named Guenther Henry Karl Kampf who was born 28 Nov. 1828 in Sonderhausen, Germany. Guenther married Marie Louise Mullerke on 9 April 1854 in Sonderhausen, Germany. He died on 9 or 10 April 1909 in Cincinnati, Ohio. They had a son named John Henry Kampf on 17 October 1862, my great-grandfather.

Guenther and Marie came to America on their honeymoon May 9, 1854. It took one month for the sailboat from Germany to America.

Does this match up to anyone?

Please contact me if it does.
