Tracing the Mayer Surname in My Tree

I always thought my maternal grandmother was Irish (Mayer) and my grandfather was German (Pallion). It turns out it’s not that straightforward, and my grandmother is much more German that I’d ever known!

Here is the Mayer line of my family tree. The furthest bac53ab866227497fdad927bace873784e--folk-art-flowers-red-flowersck I’ve been able to get for the Mayer surname in my tree is to Gottlieb Mayer, who immigrated to the United States from southern Germany.

  • Lawrence Mayer, my great grandfather
  • Edward P. Mayer, my great, great grandfather
  • Gottlieb Mayer, my great, great, great grandfather
