Johann Caspar Theodor Dreier, a successful American businessman, emigrated from Bremen Germany in 1849 and became partner of the English iron firm of Naylor, Benson and Company's New York branch. He married his cousin, Dorothea Dreier in 1864, also from Germany. Their ancestors were civic leaders and merchants and Theodor and his wife, Dorothea, became civic leaders in their own right. They had one son, Henry Edward Dreier, and three daughters, including Katherine Sophie Dreier and Dorothea Adelheid Dreier, both of whom became notable artists in their day. Although he is referenced as Theodor Sr., I couldn't find any record of him having a son named Theodor. His son, Henry Edward, however, did have a son named Theodore.
