My grandfather was Frederick Wilhelm "Fritz" Flottmann born 1856 in Borgholzhausen, Germany. He came to Franklin Co., MO in 1879 and in 1881 married Carolina Wilhelmina "Minnie" BRINKMEYER, mother of three small children and the widow of John Henry JAHNS.
In 1884 Fritz and Minnie moved to Neosho Co., KS. They had 13 children. Fritz dropped the second "n" from his name. Their youngest daughter, the late Margaret Flottman Bryant kept extensive records of this family and I have her files. Please contact me if you are connected to this family, either in Germany or the U.S.
