I found the surnames and numbers in the book kindly written by Heinrich Porth.
But first I should address the name of the village Hohenfier location. If you punch in the name at rootsweb world connect search you may receive surprising results; if you were actually expecting it to be about the area of Uelzen.
There is another area with the village name of Hohenfier. Just as one finds the name of the village Husby. One finds it in South Trondelag and Sweden and North Germany as well. The other village Hohenfier , Flatow, Grenzmark, Prussia.
