Frank Grimm

apparently lived in Ohio c. 1850 but returned to Germany

(got his first name from his daughter Maria's 1924 death certificate)

died in Katzenbach Germany



  nothing is known of the Grimm family except what can be seen in the photo, and that both their son Peter and daughter Maria said they were born in Canal Dover, Ohio (or neighboring Bakerville) yet were also from Katzenbach. On his 1902 passport application to make a return trip to Germany, son Peter put that his father "was" a naturalized citizen, of Canal Dover, but Peter's wife was from Katzenbach.
