Albert Frederick "Fritz" Moldenhauer immigrated to America in 1871 in his early 20's. Best estimate of his birth year according to various records is 1847. He was married to Margaret Lenz Hoehn Oct 8, 1879 in St Louis MO. and has left only hints of his birth place in his children's birth records such as Germany, Prussia, East Prussia and Friedland. My Grandpa said his grandfather Fritz was a soldier during the war and as a young man could not handle the war and killing so his uncle forged him a "pass" and he stole away to America. Has anyone researching Moldenhauer's traced thier ancestors to Friedland?
