Also Krutzfeldt, Krutsfeld, Kriutzfield (in US)
Peter Kreutzfeld was my wife's great grandfather. Emigrated to the US between 1854 and 1862. In US census records, place of birth is listed as Mecklenburg. In Civil War documents, his place of birth appears to be listed as Spemberg, Germany. May have travelled to the US with a brother (from recollections), having been advised to leave Germany by loved ones. A Peter Krutzfeldt arrived in New York aboard the Copernicus September 16, 1854, with Johann and Maria Krutzfeldt. This may be the correct Peter. Date of birth might be off by about five years. Origin is listed as Shrelitz. Ship sailed from Hamburg. Any help or guidance appreciated. Thank you!
