I've hunted Elk in 16C 6 times and know it pretty good, didn't know 16A and broke out the map. My Mother has an unusual last name and her last name was all over the map in 16A in a certain area. There was a hill, stream and canyon with her last name on it. The wife is all into genealogy and looked it up. One of my ancestors, Charles Eckelberger discovered gold in the Gila and developed the King of Arizona gold mine. Several things were named after him and I didn't know it.

This Fall I'll be Elk hunting in the same area my ancestors walked in the late 1800's. I think this is pretty dang cool..

Stompy, what a great opportunity, you may be hunting elk from the same gene pool that fed your ancestors, or least walking the same ground and looking at the same mountains and streams. Good luck on your hunt. texas cowboy

Short answer, probably. Over the years the spelling has changed due to census takers spelling the name the way they hear it and such. She's doing more digging.
His direct descendant is Johann Fredrick and mine is Johann Adam. They came over here for the same area in Germany but a few years apart. Going to take some time to connect them (if she can), when you get back that far it's gets and bit more difficult.
