Yes I understand that he was an illegitimate child.
His father may be Friedrich Pohle but we may never know without DNA comparison with other Pohle descendants.
I have ordered film copies from Utah and will review these and contact additional Archives in Germany. These films may hold further clues.
I have all his shipping records, so I know where he came from and which ship he was on. I'm not worried about this particular area of his life at the moment.
I appreciate all your assistance and wish you all the best with your ancestry work.
