Kristin, it is possible there is a connection, I just don't have enough information to know
I have not been able to find the parents names of Johann (John) born 1847. I am still searching
for a more specific place of birth other than Prussia. Do you
know where in Prussia Johann Franz Paradies or where in Germany Carl Paradies was born. John Paradise
said in the 1820 census that he was born in West Prussia.
It would be wonderful if we could make some connection.

I also have a Johann Paradies. Born 1847. Immigrated to the United States about 1864. We know he was born in Prussia, but that is about all we know regarding where he came from. We do not have the names of parents or siblings.
Do you know where in Prussia or Germany your Pardies line came from?
