Am looking for confirmation of ancestry on a Hermann Draehn-descendents ended up spelling it Dreahn. But Hermann was a Drahn whose name was spelled with an umlaut over the "a" as should be the case for all the Drahns. Draehns from Brenham, Texas believe him to be the brother of Johann Joachim Draehn who settled in Brenham, Texas. Hermann was born in 1855 somewhere in Prussia - more than likely Brandenburg, and if he was Johann Joachim's brother, his parents would have been Johann Heinrich and Catherine Marie Dorothee Barthels Draehn. Hermann arrived in the US before 1870, probably by the mid 1860s. If anyone knows where these parents settled, (it is now guessed to be Texas) or knows of others related to this family, please contact me. J. Heinrich Draehn descended from the same fellow the Drahns from Iowa came from, so I know at least of that connection, but would still like to know more about Hermann and prove his sibling relationship to Johann Joachim Draehn. Thank you.
