Jeanne, While this might not mean a thing, I well remember that my Grandmother, Matilda - Mrs. John Thomas, "Julius" Seng, often mentioned a relative on the East Coast, named "Alois." My Grandfather was a Son of the "first" of the German Sengs to come to America...and work their way from the East Coast, and Pennsylvania, to Chicago. His Parents were Wendelin Seng,(1828-1896) and Agnes Baer,(1844-1919). You might wish to read a note I've posted, above, today...about the "History Of The Seng Name." That will show you Wendelin and "all of his", dating back to 1534...and - even before - when the "word" SENG was the German phonetic of the Chinese family "chop' - pronounced SENG. Best wishes on the search. Tom
