Hi,
What I know about this family is not much. The area where my ancestor came from was Waldeck, Germany. The records of the area were destroyed because of the bombings in WWII. Part of the castle is still standing. A distant cousin,(he was in the USAF) tried to go there but at that time it was behind the Iron Curtain.

I was told that John Richter left Berlin, Germany and settled in NY. He was disinherited because he married out of the royal family. (I can not prove this for a fact) Later he settled in TN. During the Civil War he and his family moved and settled in TX.
