I'm trying to find out more information regarding my gggrandfather Otto Bruss born in 1862 died in 1931. Married Alwiene Degner. Had five children. One was Carl Bruss my great-grandfather who was born in 1896 and died in 1930. I'm interested in where they came from. Seems I cannot find how they came to being living in Wisconsin. My father seems to think that we are connected with Bruss' in Pennsylvia but I haven't found that connection yet. If anyone can help I would be most grateful. Renee (Bruss) K.
