Researching the names:
ATWOOD, BALLEW, BLACKMON, BOLTON, BRAWLEY, BRUTON, BRYAN, CHORICE, GOODMAN, HUDGINS, MANSKER, RUBENKOENIG, RUBENKONIG, RUHRWEIM AND SCHLITTLER. Areas these names occur have been N.C., S.C., Tn, Ky, Mo, Ga, La, Ar and Tx. Most of them have ended up in Tx. Rubenkoenig/Rubenkonig from Germany, Ruhrweim from Prussia and Schlittler from Switzerland.
I have a significant amount of information on some names and very little on others. Some of the information is not fully documented and I cannot vouch for total accuracy. If anyone has documentation I am willing to correct errors.
I would like to thank the "cousins" out there for kindly sharing your information. Without you I would still be digging because I had very little information when I started.
