We are in the same family. My grandfather was Joseph Eckstein, brother of John.
I have learned from other sources that there actually were men traveling in Europe selling land grants. My remaining question would be, how did an illiterate peasant have the money to buy a land grant?
You will find the gravesites of both Johns in the St. Joseph Cemetery, Carlton, Kewaunee, WI.
