I am another American Kriewitz. My gg-grandfather, Emil Von Kriewitz, emigrated to America in 1846 and settled in Llano, Texas. Our family has always tried to research the German line to Emil, but to no avail. We are not aware of another Kriewitz emigrating to America about this same time, but it is certainly possible Emil had a brother. I have in my possession a German primer-type book with the handwritten names Walter Kriewitz and Paul Kriewitz 1862 in the front. Neither of these two names are children of Emil and wonder if they are possibly nephews, since the date could indicate that. Would like to hear from you and put our heads together--there surely can't be many American Kriewitz's that aren't related in some way.
