My Story: I Did It My Way

Front Cover
Xlibris Corporation, 2012 - Biography & Autobiography - 288 pages
THE STORY OF THE GOEBEL FAMILY IS PROBABLY NOT AN EXCEPTIONAL TALE. EVEN THOUGH, I DO NOT CONSIDER MYSELF A STORY TELLER I WILL TRY TO TELL IT. I WILL START WITH MY GRANDPARENTS. I NEVER KNEW MY MOTHER'S FATHER (MY GRANDFATHER) BECAUSE HE DIED BEFORE I WAS BORN. HE APPARENTLY WAS AN INTERESTING MAN. THE INFORMATION I HAVE ABOUT MY GRAND FATHER, I RECEIVED FROM MY GRAND MOTHER, MY MOTHER, AND MY SISTER, THEY TOLD ME MANY STORIES ABOUT HIM AFTER MY MOTHER DIED MY SISTER SENT ME NEWSPAPER CLIPPINGS, WRITTEN NOTES, PICTURES, BOOKS, BIRTH RECORDS, ETC, THAT SHE FOUND, WITH MY MOTHER'S THINGS. THIS STORY CONTAINS THE INFORMATION THAT CAME FROM THE OLD NEWSPAPERS, SOME FROM THE RECORDS AND SOME ARE THE THINGS I REMEMBER MY MOTHER TELLING ME ABOUT HIM, MY GRANDFATHER'S NAME WAS AUGUST JOHANN ANDORAS PULS VON ROHR. AS HIS NAME INDICATES, HIS FAMILY WAS OF THE PRUSSIAN NOBILITY.
