Yeah, that sounds like a bit of an odd situation. It'd be tough to nail down based on the family names alone considering how common German names are across Europe.
It's definitely possible. No one seems to have a very good idea where that part of the family actually lived before moving here. They also have absolutely no explanation for how both my grandmother's parents ended up with german last names. I'm inclined to think they're just making it up as they go.
