Prince Cort Von Roemling Dannettel goes back to the 1400's. His story is an exciting one!(at least for me) What I have is a hand written account of Von Roemling Dannettel history, written in 1930 by Margaret Bruning. She was about 90 at the time and didn't want the family history to die with her. Apparently she must have made several of these letters. I think that the Brunings had 9 kids.
Cort Dannettel was born in 1769. He hung around with George IV of England and both were at the Battle of Waterloo. Then there is a space in time. He came to Balltimore with his daughter, Margaret Sophia Dannettel in 1832, perhaps on the same ship that Herman Bruning was on. Sophie and Herman married in 1833 in Balt. He was a Rev. at the Oberbine? (German Church in Balt.) He died in l855.
Sophie Was born in Germany on Oct 15, 1812 and died in 1895 aat the age of 80. She is buried in Baltimore Cemetery, with her first and second husband.
My gg grandmother was Henrietta Caroline Bruning born 20 Mar 1843 in Balt. and died 18 Dec. 1915 in Balt. She married John Henry Knipp Nov. 1866 by her father Rev. H.H. Bruning.
Hessy Dormstat, Germany is where the Von Roemling's were from. The Dannettel's were from France. Bruning were from Hanover. Please write me back. I have not been able to find the name Von Roemling of Dannettel anywhere. I know there are Dannettels listed in the Balt. phone directory. Cort must have had sons that came with him in 1832. It's so wonderful to find family. Are you in the Balt. area? Debbie Krauss email@example.com
