My name is William Albert Muchow and I am from the USA in the state of Maryland and I am 38 years old. I am very glad to see your website. I just recently found the town of Muchow between Berlin and Hamburg on a map. Please let me tell you of my family. I have one brother named Scott Alan Muchow, 32 years. My Father is Donald Crary Muchow, 68 years. My Father’s brother is Robert Bucher Muchow, 63 years. My Uncle Robert has two sons named Michael (31 years) and Stephen (30 years) My Grandfather was Walter Julius Muchow, he died in 1969 at the age of 73. My GreatGrandfather was Wilhelm Friedrich Ferdinand Muchow. I am not sure when he was born or died at this time, I will have to check with my Father.
I hope you will be able to write back. Tell me more about you and your family please. I wonder how far back in time we have to go to find our family connection?
I do know that my ancestors emigrated from Germany in the 1800’s from somewhere near Stettin and Stuttgart. Other sirnames that I know of in my ancestry are Bucher, Butler, Crary, Matusky, Bratt.
Good luck and good fortune to you and your family.
PS-Could you try to explain to me how you pronounce “Muchow”?
I have attached a map of the area of Maryland that I and my family live. You should see a red star over Severn, where I live. You should also see blue dots where my family lives. Those towns are Linthicum, Severna Park, and Silver Spring.
