Hi, Luis! Thank you for responding. Yes, my gg grandfather, John Jaymes, born 8/6/1810, died 7/21/1885 and his wife, Margaret, born 2/14/1813, died 9/14/1890, came from Germany in 1851 with two sons, John and Jacob. Jacob settled in the Shade Gap, PA area, and John went west, probably to Kansas. John was my g grandfather, the father of Myrtle Jaymes, who was my g grandmother's (Mary Jane) sister. That is as far back as I have been able to trace so it is possible they were in France and Spain as well. I would be delighted if your "someone" can make the connection!
