Although unusual, it is possible for the son to have the same name as the
father. My cousin and fellow SIG member Joe FEITLER is named after his
grandfather Josef FEITLER b. 1848 Kaplitz, Bohemia (brother of my
gg-grandfather Michael FEITLER). But that Josef FEITLER's father is also
Josef FEITLER. Possibly he was named after his maternal grandfather Josef
STEININGER, so that it was not improper to have the same name as his father.
That might have been the case with your family also.
