From the post titled "Walter Jacobsohn": In 1936, Uncle Louis, Oma’s brother and his wife, Aunt Martha, came for their last visit to Germany. They lived at the time in Cincinnati, Ohio, and had made their visits every seven years. He had left Germany in 1890 at the age of 14. It was on this visit, that Uncle Louis wanted to take us with him to the USA. Irma and I both had widowed mothers and did not want to leave them behind.
