Johanna Emilie von Koppenfels born in 1936, married Frederick William Holzbaur in 1959, with whom we served for a number of years in the military. The von Koppenfels were noble landowners in East Prussia and businessmen to boot. Johanna and Fred Holzbaur are good friends and thought to dig up her coat of arms to be a fun thing to do and hope they enjoy this.

The artwork is a rendering by John Hamilton Gaylor.
