I think the Nicholas Funk who came to Brazil is Paulus Funk's son, who was 2 years old when Paulus immigrated to Brazil in 1856. Nicholas died in 1927. The family is registered on the papers of the British ship Thames, which sailed from Hamburg to Porto Alegre, South Brazil. The Nicholas Funk who immigrated to the USA is Paulus' younger brother, who married Eva Frederick. His death certificate was issued in Racine, 1904. I would like to receive emails from Nicholas' descendents. If you are interested I have a whole research on Paulus Funk's descendents in Brazil. In Eisenach, all these Funks are registered FUNCK, not Funk, but as Paulus' passport (which is in my possession) shows FUNK, most of his descendents in Brazil are registered FUNK. Thank you for yout attention.
