Searching for anything pertaining to the Mecklenburg Bruss Family. There are a number of different facets I am looking for.
Going backward, I am looking for information on the family of the wife of Wilhelm Johann Karl Bruss, born 29 Nov 1857 in Marlow. His wife Luise Sophie Klenz, was born 10 Oct 1862 in Pommern. After that, there is very little info. I know her dad's name, Johann Carl Heinrich Klentz, but that is it.
Next is David Christian Karl Bruss, born 24 Nov 1813 in Tressentin. He was married several times, but Wilhelm's mother is Sophie Paepke, born 16 Sept, 1824 in Dettmannsdorf. I cannot find much on either of her parents, and what I have found is based on speculation.
Other than that, I have David's father as Otto Friedrich Bruss, born 16 Apr 1749 in Tressentin and mother as Anna Marie Schluter, born 5 Fen 1779 in Dammgarten.
Otto's mother is Sophie Peters was born around 1718 in Herzogtum. I have no information on Otto's father Johann Hinrich Bruss other than his father was also named Johann.
Any info anyone has would be greatly appreciated. My trees are available publicly, but they are not set in stone. I am continually finding errors that I have made in assuming what others have done is correct.
Lastly, Wilhelm Bruss moved to Canada and ever since, the last name has been Bruce, often confused with the Irish Bruce's... I have no info on Wilhelm's brother Heinrich, born 3 Feb 1861 in Marlow.
