Nadine, My great grandmother, Catherine BRAUN, and her sister, Marie, came
from St. Avold in Lorraine to New Orleans, Louisiana, in 1860 when they were
about 14 and 12 years old respectively. They lived with their uncle, John
BRAUN, in that city. Within 6 months of arriving in New Orleans Catherine
married my great grandfather, Joseph KOPFLER, who had come from Baden.
According to some records it seems that August MAYER was an uncle to John
BRAUN's children. I do not know if he was related by blood to John Braun or
to his wife, Jeanette.
In some records the name is spelled BRUN.
Do you think that there is any connection?
