Falkenstein - Germany/Prussia

Falkenstein - Germany/Prussia

Surnames: Falkenstein, Dittenhoefer
My GGGrandmother was born Tillie Falkenstein in NY in the 1840's. Her parents came to America from Prussia. I have her diary from 1900 that recorded her trip to Europe - she listed her parents siblings living in Steinheim, Germany in the address section of the diary. She became a Doctor in 1886 from University of Portland - had a practice in SF. She died in 1900 shortly after returning from Europe. Her mother's name may have been Berte/Berthe/Bette? They were Jewish. Her father's name was Gustave. She married Tobias Dittenhoefer - a merchant in Portland. Any connection?
