Ferdinand is not related to me. However, his sister, Johanna, married into my Pagel family. Their parents were Johann "Heinrich" Kuehne, born 27 Jun 1809 and Johanna Elizabeth Krause, born 18 Dec 1809. All I know is that Heinrich was born in Saxony and the family immigrated from Hamburg in 1851. Johanna was born in Calbe, Prussia in 1843.
