John Paul and Bernadina (Boeckmann) GSTREIN and their two sons, Jacob J. and Alois, left Tirol, Austria between 1852-8. They moved first To Cincinnati, Ohio USA and shortly afterwards, they moved across the river to Covington, Kentucky, USA. What town in Austria did they come from and what family did they leave behind? There is a family story that the Gstreins had an ancestor who died when his wagon load of sticks fell off the side of a mountain. Is that familiar to anyone?
