I'm searching for a Kruse family that came from Prussia to Clayton Co. Iowa, the same one Brian Eberling has been posting about, etc. My confusion is centered around the parents of Fritz Kruse, born Oct 21 1839 and married to Miss Brunstein. I have it listed as Charles Kruse and Mary, but in the marriage certificate Brian posted it seems to show a Johann Kruse and a Regine Bradenberg as his parents. Are these people perhaps one in the same (I realize these German families often had several names)? Any help would be great! Oh, and I am descended from Fritz's son Herman, by his son Herman Jr.
