I saw your 2003 message on Ancestry message board re the Eiffert family. You said your grandfather came from Frankfurt, Germany? My great grandfather came from Franfurt too, but he was born about 1826. I am trying to find out more about him, but it is very difficult as he left Germany and came to England. I wondered if any of 'your Eifferts' may have known him or any of his brothers. There were Adam (my great-grandfather), George, another Adam (shown as having been born about 1821), Elizabeth, and a few others. I understand my g-grandfather worked in a Pottery in his homeland, but they all came to England as musicians and they brought a dancing bear with them. He lived in Kent, England, and worked as a Pottery labourer. I would like to know more about him, and it would be good if any of your ancestors knew of any of this side of the family, especially coming from the same area in Germany. Hope you will reply back.
