"Searching for WITTIG families that may be related to my GGrandfather, Johann WITTIG, b 24 June 1810 in Saxony, Germany and my GGrandmother, Marianna PRESCHER, b June 1815 in Seidendorf, Saxony, Germany. With their two children, Josef and Ferdinand who was my Grandfather, they came to America ~ 1850? and settled in Milwaukee ..."

Johann Wittig's death notices and an obit. were published in Milwaukee's German newspapers. The clippings are identified in "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950). His death notices reference Joseph & Ferd. There are possible matches to his wife, and a Joseph & Ferdinand are listed among the 125 Wittig entries indexed so far.
