|Richard was a prussian officer. After he lost his wife in 1880 and 3 years later his two sons, he emigrated to the USA in 1884(?). During the travel from Hamburg/Germany to New York, he became a friend of the american officer Edward Williams. Edward invited him to Washington, where Richard lived for some months. Later Richard became a teacher in West Point (for tactics and the German language). |
Unfortunately, we lost contact with him. If anybody knows something about his children, let me know.
