Bill, I have to say I've never run into the surname you have in my research. If you haven't seen it, see if you can get to HORNER family tree of mine and you'll see Friedrich was the family name in Oelze quite a ways back. My great Grandfather was Carl, ended up in north NJ in the Newark, Irvington area with several siblings. Most of them went into the butcher shop business, but not him. Check out my tree and see it that's any help.
