That is very interesting about the ancestral town being written in an American document. Even immigration papers from the 1870's rarely state anything more than ' Germany ' or ' Hesse '. I found mine on the original Civil War widow's pension files and on the 1882 marriage document of my great-grandmother when the "ethnic" German Lutheran Church of St. Peters in New York City asked the birthplace of her father and mother. Precisely what kind of a document did you find Johannes Sack's EXACT birthplace ? It may help other researchers to pin-point the town rather than the general area in Germany where their ancestors came from. As we all know, without that vital piece of information you can search forever and never find your immigrant ancestor's people.
