My maternal gramdmother was Anna Beha my
mother was raised in Washington, D.C., by an
aunt, Augusta Beha. There was an uncle, Franz.
Andreas Bea married Balbina Dold and changed
"Bea" to the ancient spelling of "Beha" when
he found Americans pronounced "Bea" Bee. A
Dorman family in California is descended from
Andreas and Balbina. My last contact there
was George Dorman in Fresno. The family was
from the Gutenbach area of the Black Forest
and moved to the US in the post Civil War era
so far as I know. Anna Beha married Samuel Heller
Heller but I don't know whether here or in Germany.
My mother, Lillian Heller, married Henry I.
Quinn in Washington, D.C., 1910.
