I recently saw your message on this board and thought I would try to contact you. I am looking for the roots of my ancestor, Henry (Heinrich?) H. Pries, who emmegrated to the USA about 1867-69 with three children - John, Thomas, and Edith (Ida). He may have been traveling with his wife(?) Doris Martin (Marten). He declared his birthplace as Holstein. If you have any information regarding this branch of the family, I would greatly appreciate hearing from you.
