Thanks to everyone who reply to my posting.I got a lot of info.I am looking in Prussia from 1852 to
1882.Johann Friedrich Manthei was B:29 Feb 1852 some where in the Province of Posen.In the
family bible it shows Posen,Province of Posen.I do not know if it is the town or Keris.
I have looked in Posen civil records with no luck.I know he had a brother or cousin Lawerence
Christroph Manthei(y) that came from Nakel.I have looked in Nakel,Exin and Schubin records.
David P. Manthei
