My grandfather Hermann Meyer was born in Halle. He immigrated to America in the late 1800's. He settled in New Jersey where he had one son. My grandfather's brother lived in Holzminden. Not sure if the family or another family member owned a farm that my grandfather might have worked on when he was a child. I'm trying to find any relatives. My great grandfather was Conrad Meyer and grandmother Lena was of the Albrecht/von Albrecht or Scheve family.
