For today’s inaugural Migrant Monday post I will be introducing Anna Marie Brecht Frey. She was born August 15, 1856 in Rinboussia, Germany. She immigrated to the United States with her parents, Mathias and Barbara Halt Brecht (though prior spellings had it as Briet and a few other variants) in May of 1872 and settled in Pittsburgh where she married John Jacob Frey who had come here at the same time. Anna had America, she spent her life longing to return to her home. The couple had nine children. She died in her son, Nicholas Jame’s in law’s home in South Heights, Pennsylvania on May 29, 1926 having outlived John by about a decade.
