Does anyone know of any member of the royal family or reletives thereof who came to America to avoid going in the Prussian Army abt. 1856. Hans Christian/Henry Jacobs was brought over by his mother Anna Marie ? I suspect he had brothers with them. They settled in St. Louis Co., MO. Family lore has it they canged the name from the origional to jacobs to avoid detection.
Any leads greatly appreciated! Thanks!
