My ggrandfather, Ferdinand C(?) Behrendt appears to have come to the US circa 1881 on the Lessing from Hamburg Germany via Le Harve France. He married Anna (Hermann?)and had two sons, Irving Loring and William Carl. William is my grandfather. William married my grandmother Etta Bidwell 11/12/1913. Any information on Ferdinand's family/birthplace would be much appreciated. I have hit a wall really early into my search for my German roots.
