Frederick Trump (born Friedrich Trump; March 14, 1869 – May 27, 1918)
In 1923, Christian Trumpf and two partners acquired Julius Geiger GmbH, a machine shop in Stuttgart. The company manufactured flexible shafts used in metal processing machines, amongst other applications, and motor-driven hand shears for cutting sheet metal. In 1933, the company moved to the Stuttgart suburb of Weilimdorf. During World War II, TRUMPF continued with the production of electric shears and flexible shafts. The production buildings remained undamaged.
We have all heard someone say that their family name was "changed by the inspectors at Ellis Island." Nowadays our names are recorded when we are born and are virtually never changed. You can still use any name you want as long as you do not intend to defraud but, in fact, with drivers' licenses, social security numbers, credit cards, etc., it is just too complicated to try to alter your name except through a court proceeding.

It's the 20th name from the top.

She accidentally refers to him as "Friedrich Drumpf" in a news interview, something an expert in Trump/Drumpf history wouldn't do unless there was some truth to it.) (undo) [accepted by Matt Deres]
The immigration records list his name as Friedr. Trumpf, but sources including the genealogy organization [[FamilySearch]], a genealogist at [[About.com]], and the 2013 book ''America's Obsessives'' concluded that both his father and his aunt's surnames were Trump
