This thread is old, as stated in the previous post but here is my followup. The name seems to be a surprise to even those who speak German. I had someone who was from Germany say that it was an unusual name. His explaination was that decades ago they gave Jews derogatory names. Later in history, Jews gave themselves uplifting names like GOLDstein, etc. I don't know...just what was told to me. Were they waaay back then, Jews and assigned this name? As for Neufen, it is easy to trace the family there for many generations. I have it, thanks to another Muckenfuss cousin who sent it to me. Glad to read your comments about them moving to Neuffen. That explains to me the connections between the two cities and the genealogy. My line was a later immigration ...late 1800's to Cincinatti, Ohio. I have never found a connection to the SC group. Probably related in Kohlberg way back on the line. All of mine show Neuffen. They didn't travel very far.
