Identifying the parents of Moritz Martin Bernhardt born 1827 Treptow Prussia

6

Moritz Martin Bernhardt is my great-grand father.

I was able to learn his age and place of birth (1827 Treptow, Prussia) from his application for US Citizenship.

I found his date and place of death (1862 Fredericksburg, Texas) in the pioneer church book in Fredericksburg, Texas.

His life and family in Prussia, however, is still unknown and I would like to identify his parents and gain more precise information about his birth.

Have you sought out his tombstone? Jewish tombstones when inscribed in Hebrew will often give the father's first name as in Moritz (possibly Moshe in Hebrew) son of the honorable ______.
