Anna Margaret was born about 1819 in Hanover, Germany. The world history from Germany also mentions about the descendent Thomas Rupers (cousin of Ronald Rupers, son of Guy Rupers, brother of Albert Earl Rupers, that Heinrich was approached by Kaiser agents in the USA to return to Germany, given passage, cashed it in, changed his name (Heinrich becomes Henry) and never returned to Germany. Henry became a naturalized citizen in the USA according to USA census. As of January 20, 2015 proof is needed. Henry's parents were both from Prussia as well. The German first born stays in Germany to run the farm. The other siblings including Henry may have taken a ship from Holland to Canada (not to the USA). Other German immigrants from Prussia went to Holland and then to Canada by Holland ship. More research needed.
