Descendants of Ludwig Preuss, Sr.


Ludwig Preuss, Sr., and his wife, Emilie “Minnie” Harmer, were both born in the 1840’s in Prussia. Two of their children were born in Prussia before they emigrated to America in 1870.

They settled first in an area just west of Detroit, and another seven children were born there. They finally moved to Greenfield Township in Monroe County in the early-1880’s and their last two children were born there.

Their children married into families such as Bernhardt, Schreiber, Westpfahl, Kamrath, Olson, Scholz, Boeder, Rosenow and Hoy. Some of their descendants eventually changed the spelling of their surname to "Prise."
