I am researching the family of Ludwig Brei who settled in
Muscatine Co IA in the 1860's. I have also been keeping a
database of all families I find with this spelling
(BREI) hoping to tie them together. If you are
researching this name I would love to add your info
to the database.

I have traced my ancestry back to Johann Ludwig "John" Brei (married Maria J. Rekentin) who immigrated to America and settled in Pittsford, NY in 1864. I am not sure if their is any connection but if so, let me know. (Johann Sr. born 1838, died 1918)

Their children were Johann, Jr., Henry W., Maria (Mary), Sophia Anna, Mina (Minnie), Frederick Charles and Louis Carl.

Good Luck.

My grandmother, Anna Maria was the daughter of Ludwig Brei. I see you have the complete list of 12 children furnished on another response. Do you have Ludwig's parents names? I have his wife, Elizabeth Krell's, ancestry but not his.

Sorry to say I have had no luck in finding the ancestors
of Ludwig Brei. At one point I was told his
father's name was Noah but I have NO proof of
this nor have I found any substantiating data.

My Grandma was Ida Anna Minna Brey (b. 1898, d. 1986).

She was the first child of Hermann Carl Friedrich Brei and Martha Marie Elizabeth Behm. (m. 1894). I think that Hermann came over from Germany when he was 1 year old to Waushara Co, Wisconsin. All the Breys (spelling was Americanized) that I know of are in Wisconsin.

If you are interested in sharing info, please send me an email.
