Re: AMEND Family of Germay

Your depiction of our last name could be appropriate given the questionable past of my great-grandfather "Gus" Amend.
The facts are hazy but, I do have a few.
He was born in Lintz which is now in Austria
(formerly Prussia). He imigrated to Wisconsin
and was given the dubious nickname " Black Gus" because he was a mean guy. He later went to prison for murdering a guy. He was said to have hung himself while incarcerated but it is not known for sure. I don't have all of the particulars with me at this time but, I can get them from my father who is more informed than I am. Our immediate family has a family reunion every two years in Rio Wisconsin.
