I am hoping someone here is related to this family.
My great-great-great-grandmother Paulina Kretzer had a brother, Karol Fryderyk Kretzer. He was born June 7, 1843 in the village of Slowik, near Zgierz. Paulina was born in 1835 or 1836 near Zgierz.
He and Paulina were children of Josef Kretzer, a clothmaker, and Marianna Hentszel. Josef was born in 1802 or 1803. Marianna was born in 1812 or 1813.
A researcher possibly found a brother for Marianna- Henryk Henschel. He was born in Rothenburg, Silesia. He was born in 1815 or 1814 to Gotlieb Henschel and Joanna Krystyna Schermer. Gotlieb was a clothmaker. Henryk married Caroline Wilhelmina Trettin, daughter of Gotlieb Trettin and Elisabeth Grams.
