I also see that there is at least one other family from Suckow on these 
two pages, a Frank family; they are also from Russia. There are also 
some German Russian families from a Ludwikow, including a Markwart. 
These are all familiar surnames of the families from both sides of the 
Bug River in Volhynia and Russian Poland. The families may have fled 
north to emigrate or they may have left earlier and had to wait some 
time before they could leave for Brazil or North America. They could 
also have arrived there some years earlier. If you can trace where 
Gottfried's children were born, that should help tell the story. You 
might use Suckow as a key word  in an immigration search to see if other 
families related to yours were also there.

One of the branches of my Pohl family disappeared from the Lublin 
records about 1900. I have since located a cousin in Berlin who comes 
from that family, recognized photos I had, and knew of a marriage in the 
Berlin area in 1913, but the family probably arrived there some years 
before. There was still contact between this branch and my father during 
WWII and the years after the war though he had stayed in the Lublin area 
until 1940, served in the German army, and settled near Hamburg until 
emigrating in 1952. But he never spoke of this family nor told my mother 
about them even though there are photos of them in the family album. All 
of us have many mysteries to solve.
