Volga German
Unknown Major is a Volga German.
Unknown Major has German Roots .

Mr. Major was the first husband of Anna Elisabeth Schmidt. The couple had at least one son, Johann Jakob Major, who immigrated to the United States prior to any other family members and resided in Chicago, Illinois. When his half brother Georg Jakob Kaiser immigrated to America, he listed his half brother as the person he would be staying with after he and his family arrived. The Unknown Major of this profile is Johann Jakob Major's father. In the United States, the spelling of his name, at least in Jakob Kaiser's immigration records, changed to Meier. This may have been due to the fact that the J in the surname sounded like a Y when pronounced.
