My GGrandfather, Carl Friedrich MORITZ Eggert, born in 1824 in Bytow,
Koselin Statin, Pommerian. Married to Ernestina Shopia Johana Marzahl, born
1832 in Bublitz, Pommer, Koeslin Stettin. They left Pommeria and moved to
Insel Rugen sometime after 1860. They emmigrated to USA in 1871 and settled
in Scott County, Iowa. Does this in any way link to your line of MORITZ?

Please excuse my interfering.
I do not think your ancestor was a MORITZ, but he may rather have been an
EGGERT ! (I do not exclude that he changed his name to MORITZ instead.)
He was born in Buetow (u with two dots on top); Koselin Statin may stand
for Stadtkreis Koeslin (o with two dots on top) - there used to be a
difgfernce between a Kreis that included mainly rhew town and possibly
some suburbs = Stadtkreis and a Kreis that consisted of villages
the administration of which was in the same city. You have your court
houses that way.
When you mention Pommeria and Pommer - they are the same thing, but you
might either spell them in correct German: POMMERN or Pomerania.
Koeslin is now Polish Koszalin - but a person born in Koeslin has been
born in Koeslin, a person born in the samew place after 1945 in Koszalin.
(Kreis in Polish often maintained the same, in Polish it is a powiat.)
Stettin (Polish: Szczecin) was and is the capital of Pommern.
Normally people from Pommern and Schleswig-Holstein have little in
common, but maybe...
I do not know and cannot find Aronholz and / or Altonholz on my good
maps, however. Would love to find out what you mean.
Hope I did not disturb you too much. Try to help where I see mistakes.
