my grandfather was Henry Bertram. The family name was changed from Bertrand to Bertram when my great grandfather came to America. My grandfather grew up in Cambria County, Pa. I also grew up hearing that his father was from France, but had to flee to Germany because he fought a duel after dueling was outlawed. He married a German woman before he immigrated. He was a son of General Bertrand, who followed Napolean to Elba.
