    Hello, I love your website….my maiden name was Pottgen, daughter of Robert born in St Louis, MO. Would love to know if we have any other names in common.ReplyCancel

    Thanks for the follow!
    I love your surname page. Great idea to find pictures to illustrate each family. It looks very nice.

      Thanks Diane! Each picture is actually a button that links to a page with all of the posts about that surname. The button is always changing, since it uses the most recent post as the button. :)ReplyCancel

    It seems like every Pottgen I find (or who finds me) are from the St. Louis area!! I’d be more than happy to share info with you. I would love to piece together this family, which I’m sure are all related. :)ReplyCancel

    I go back to Peter Pottgen, b in Prussia 1823. He was naturalized in 1850 in St Louis. Married Catherine Fanny Engle and they lived outside of St Louis near St Albans area. My cousin Jeri Heinz and I visited the area and found a small private cemetery without any tombstones. All records that I found of him I found in Union, MO. They had quite a few children of which William was my ggrandfather, he was b 12/31/59. My new search is to find where Peter came from in Prussia. Keep me posted if you have anything further. Thanks.ReplyCancel
