Hi, John!

The fact that you can trace one of your ancestors whose life was cut short by the hangman`s noose more than 250 years ago, is quite remarkable! My American/Manhattan born paternal grandmother`s parents (my great-grandparents) emigrated to New York City from Posen, Prussia (then part of Germany, now a city in northern Poland) during the 1860s when the American Civil War took place. Her uncle (my great-granduncle) also came during that time and became a soldier in the Union Army ("The Grand Army Of The Republic") to serve his new country! Although he settled in Paterson, New Jersey after the war, his many relatives including my grandmother (his niece) eventually moved from Manhattan to The Bronx during the early years of the 20th century.

Thanks, John, for a most interesting post!
