Martin Luther was our Granddaddy.

21 Feb

Martin Luther was our Granddaddy.

Yes, if you comb backward through the family tree on my mother’s side of the family, the Garner-Fuessel side, you can trace the generations back to the man who started the Reformation. Hannes and his father Peter Pfund are a branch of that family originating in Prussia. My forebears back three generations (Fred and Marie Fuessel) traveled across the Atlantic and made a new life for themselves here in St. Louis. My mother Jeanne kept in touch with Peter and with his mother Leonore Pfund of Dresden. Hannes and I have carried on the tradition of transAtlantic correspondence. Here is Hannes with his parents, Ilse and Peter Pfund, Konstanz, Germany, 1971.
