Hi Porath Family.

I am researching my G Granddad, Ferdinand Porath, B. Jan of 1847, somewhere in Prussia, Germany. Don't know the exact state in Prussia, as there 'were' several states 'under the land area' Prussia. (may have been in the Arnswalde (Brandenburg or Pommern) area)

He would have immigrated sometime before 1875. He had 2 wives, 1st Wilhelmina Schrader, 2nd Johanna Kreuger. He married Johanna in Ottowa Co, Ohio. He died and was buried in Elliston Ohio. (Elliston/Trowbridge Cem)

Anyone have info on his parents in Germany?
