The earliest-known members of the Preiss family lived in the town of Brenz an der Brenz in what is now the German state of Baden-Wuerttemberg. In the late 1600s, two brothers moved to Erbach, in what is now the German state of Hessen. About 1750, the family moved a few miles west to the village of Gadernheim. Finally, in 1831, Christian and Nicholas Preiss immigrated to America.
