A silver watch was handed down to Arthur F Dralle, Jr. and has been now handed down to his cousin Joan's daughter Joanne. Joanne has a son Peter that she may one day hand the watch down to as a family keepsake.
Immigration The Braun family came to America about 1892. The family decided that they would stay but they had to return to Germany to close up the home and shop. Emily wasn't feeling well at the time so she stayed here while the family went back to get Otto who had remained in Germany at this time. The oldest son Rudolf decided to remain in Germany and never emigrated
Citizen Emily never became a citizen of the U.S. until sometime during WWII when she discovered that she wasn't a citizen just because she was married to a citizen.
