Johan Georg MENG (my great grandfather) and family and brother, Johan Christian MENG and family came to Doniphan County, KS in 1860 from Roetenbach, Wuerttemberg with a sister, Christina(Mrs. Gottfried GUMMIG). The previous year,1859, Christian's son, Andrew arrived in Kansas. Andrew fought in the Civil War and later married Barbara OSWALD of Atchison County. George's first wife, Barbara died and he remarried Margaretha Christina BUNTZ (she remarried David John BERGER). Christian did not show up in records in Kansas, but wife Dorothy lived with son Andrew and his family. Two daughers, Dorothy (Mrs. John W. FLUMAN) and Barbara (Mrs, William WIDMAN) married and lived in Buchanan County, MO.
