I am afraid I don't recognize the names-The original German spelling is Ramseuer-Heinrich is the one who cmae to America with wife and young son Johann Adam in 1730's-When Adam became an adult he dropped the Johann and became just Adam and changed the spelling to Ramsower. Heinrich's brothers were Dietrich and Theodore- nothing is known as to what happened to Theodore after he bgt land in Trapp Pa. Dietrich ended up in NC-and kept the original spelling of the name. hope this sheds some light.
