My 2 gr grandfather Wilhelm E. Eichholz b 1 Jul 1849 in Pommern, Germany d 24 May 1917 in Milwaukee, Wisc. arrived in NY Nov 1868 or 1869. His father was Fred Eichholz & mother was Frederika Kath. Wilhelm married Augusta Peters (1851 - 1911) in Milwaukee, Wis on 3 Jul 1870. They had 9 known children all born in Milwaukee from 1871 to 1893, Albert Hermann Emil, Wilhelm August Carl died before age 1, Johann Wilhelm August, Emma Wilhelmina Johanna - gr grandma, Fredrich August Wilhelm died before age 2, Emil August Berhnard, Selma Bertha Wilhelmine, Hulda Alure Caroline died before age 1, Ernst Ludwig Wilhelm. Gr grandpa Wilhelm also had a brother Hermann who married a Wilhelmine Haass in Milwaukee on 3 May 1974. I have read the other replies and there are a lot of the same names, so we are probably related.
