My great grandfather was Peter Heim Deertz from Friedrichstadt, Germany: born June 20, 1854. Married in NYC in 1882. Died in 1920. Friedrichstadt or Friedrichstadten is in the lower part of Germany near the Swiss border. I know from my grandmother (his daughter) he came hear to escape the Kaiser's Army induction, and that he came with one Brother. Have no other info right now.
