German Brass

Surnames: Brass, O'Neill

My husband's great-grandfather, August Frederick Brass, came to America with his parents (names unknown) at the age of 5, probably late 1870s- early 1880s. According to August's younger sister Aimee Brass Parker (b. 1884 in MO/OH), their parents were married in Menz, Germany/Prussia. Their daughter Clara Brass Siemen was born in 1887.

They came to Cleveland, OH before settling in Missouri (first Doniphan, then St. Louis in 1898). August married Margaret E. O'Neill in 1897 in Doniphan, MO.

I am uncertan of were Menz is exactly or trhe origins of August' sfamily, but Would like to know if you are familiar with any German Brass who settled in OH or MO.

Thank you,
Jane Brass
