Roggenbuck name difference in Flötenstein

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.
