Before WWII there were about 40 families with the last name of Roggenbuck in Flötenstein. To differentiate from each other with probably the same first name they used a additional name in front of the first name. Example: Peter Roggenbuck (born in 1832) was the owner of the village inn. So his son Peter was Krug Peter Roggenbuck. Even in the states they continued with that habit.
