My great-grandparents were born/raised and married in Prussia. In 1881 Philipp (b. 1859; d. 1910; buried Mt. Calvary Cemetery, Nampa ID) and Maria (Fietzek) (b. 5-4-1857; d. 5-7-1927; buried Mt. Calvary Cemetery, Nampa ID) Motzko (changed from Moczko) and their daughter, Catherine (b. 4-27-1879; d. 1-5-1945) left Prussia for Germany, where they took a ship (Leipzig) from Breman and sailed to Baltimore (with a final destination of Minnesota), arriving in United States on June 12, 1881. They settled in Minnesota and then Idaho where he was a farmer and she was a housekeeper...they had a total of 10 children.
Anyone reading this who are related to these people please contact me via this blog...I'll get back to you and we can share tons of additional information.
I will be posting blogs in the future about each of the children of Philipp and Maria (changed to Mary when relocating, but I'm calling her Maria for clarity sake)
