Here's a photo of the great grand parents. The ring I posted belonged to him...too bad we couldn't see his ring on him! I took a close up to see her rings and although it's hard to see them, they certainly don't appear to have come from a box of cracker jacks!
I don't know what year they came to the U.S.A. but I know my grandmother, my moms mom, was born in the very early 1900's and had 5 siblings. He must have done very well for his family being a Court Translator.
I don't remember this grand father (great) but I do remember her! She didn't read a bit of English and never spoke much either. She was 98 when she passed and I think I was somewhere under 10. Now who's gonna do that math?
Here also is the best I could do with a photo of the rings hallmark. I have no idea what type of photo this actually is...obviously, zero knowledge in that category.
