MINEBERG or MEINBERG in Hessen #germany


Marion Hattenbach Bernstein
 

Dear Friends,

I am trying to find a connection between my g-grandfather, Wolf
KOHLHAGEN, and the MINEBERG family who lived in East Poultney,
Vermont, in the 1860's.

Wolf came to the U.S. in 1861 and stayed with the MINEBERG family
before returning to Germany in 1863.

I suspect the name in German was MEINBERG (possible other spellings
are MAINBERG or MEYNBERG). Lars Menk notes that the name appeared in
the early 1800's in Hoeringhausen, Waldeck District, Hessen. This is
also Wolf KOHLHAGEN's home town.

If you know of any connection or any information about the MEINBERG
family, please share it with me. Thanks!
