I would like to find more information about my great grandfather, Karl Edler VonGraeve.
Karl Edler VonGraeve grew up in East Prussia, now part of Poland, in the late 1800's. I believe his father's name was Adolf Hanst Edler Von Graeve.
I believe he was in some branch of the military. He lived in Bozecin - Groß Gottswalde (now Bozecin) near Mohrungen (now Morag).
Karl VonGraeve had a son, my mother's father, Carl VonGraeve. I believe my grandfather was born out of wedlock, the mother was J Butz. My grandfather came to America around 1899 with his mother but not with Karl Edler VonGraeve.
I would like to know more about Karl Edler VonGraeve:
Did he have other children/family?
Are there surviving family?
What was his occupation?
Was his heritage Polish, German, Prussian (I am not too clear on the areas history)?
If you could help me with this information I would appreciate it very much.
