My maternal grandmother, Adolphina Schmidt (Smith, in the New World)(nee Kludt, of course) had a brother who lived in Tacoma Washington. He was my great uncle Ed. I assume his name was Edward which is probably an Americanized form of a similar German name. His wife's name was Bertha and I think they married after they arrived in the USA. They had one son and four daughters. He, himself, immigrated to the States before WWI. I think the family came from a town in the west of the Ukraine. The family was originally from Germany, probably Saxony, Mecklenburg or someplace nearby, but lived in a German community in the Ukraine.
