Looking for FIIHR of Iowa and Germany

Journal by sallyannmagee

My Surname FIIHR is my maiden name. It is actually spelled F, umlote U, H, R (the German "way"). When my grandparents came over from Germany, the Umlote, U, was not in the "Anglo/American" way of spelling. My grandmother chose 2, "I"s because when you write it in 'cursive' it looks like an umlote "U". I wish that she just kept the "U" because it would have made it so much easier! If she wanted the 'dots' over the "U", then, she could have just added them!
When my grandparents came to "Stanton Island", they ended up in the midwest in Iowa.

Sally,

I sent an email through this site but do not know where it went, I thought that it would show up in this journal somehow. Anyway, I am Dwayne Fiihr and live in Story City Iowa. Is your grandfather Herb Fiihr?
