Have you found out that he changed his name a couple of times? One was to a Penner. My relative is Jan. She isn't the same one you are looking for is it? My Jan does a lot of searching for different parts of the family and has come up with some amazing finds. Jan and I are actually related on two sides of the family. Both Veer (Fehr)and Penner sides. Both of us are in the US, Jan in Michigan and I am in Minnesota although I am in Texas at the moment.
