Hoboken

My ancestors, the Petermanns and Lands, lived in Hoboken as did my husband, Tom's ancestors, the Blancks, Erxmeyers and Kettlers.

In fact, at one point in 1886/87 the Blancks and the Petermanns lived on the same block of Willow Street. Since both families had young boys of the same age it is highly likely that they had at least a nodding acquaintance. See Did Our Ancestors Know Each Other
