My children's great grandfather was JOHN FREDERICK PHILIPPI whom I would guess was born about 1895, and his birthplace is unknown. He was married in Maine to Annah Cushman. They had three children (Annah, John, Jr. and Mary). Annah and John were divorced and each remarried. The only thing I know about John is that he and or some more children lived in New York City.
John, Jr. was in WW II in some type of important government security position. In his clearance, I was told he found that his birth father's brother was highly placed in the German army. At some point, he changed his name to that of his step father.
I want to know about JOHN FREDERICK PHILIPPI because his blood flows through the veins of my children and my grandchildren.
