George E. Hattorf 1880 in New York
Thank you for your mail ! Hm difficult to believe for me that George E. was
in Europe in 1880. His son August is born 1879 i would not leave my family if
i have a one year old son at home and a wife. And whom should he visit. HIS
family, his grandfather in germany died greatgrandfather died 1838 his father
is in Virginia with a new family and his mother i think she was dying having
a baby around 1856 !
And he is not in 1860, 1870, 1880 always on a Europe trip. I think he is so
hard misspelled that noone can find him or he was moving around in New York,
so he was just leaving as the enumerator came or ???
OK there is still one idea she is very strange i know .... If a German wants
to leave his country he goes to France or Italy or Spain ....
A US-Citizen? Perhaps Candada? Why not? Some of the Hattorf family have been
going to Canada.
And his brother Frederick was living for a certain time in Vermont i think
this is not so far to the canadian border or am i wrong?
Thank you so much for your help
