I received an e-mail from my 2nd cousin Wendy (whom I've only met on Facebook - go social media!) late this afternoon with some very interesting information based on the marriage certificate for Frances Pressner and Richard Henneberg, my great-grandparents:
- Frances' father was Robert Pressner . . . and his name was spelled "Pressnir", which may have been a shortened version of "Pressnirvinsky".
- Frances' mother was Anna Haring, but misspelled "Herring" on Frances' marriage certificate to Richard Henneberg.
