I have a photo of "Katrina (Kiefer) Gotsch", married to Rev. G. Theodore Gotsch/Gotch, which I would like to get back to family members. Back of photo has handwritten facts that they were married 20 Dec 1853, and that she was born 11 Oct 1833 and died 16 May 1899.
Indiana marriages shows George T. Gotsch marrying in Allen Co., IN on 20 Dec 1853 to Catherine Kiefer. 1880 census for York, DuPage Co., IL shows G.L.H. Gotsch age 55 born in Germany, a minister, with wife Catherine, age 47, born Germany. Children were Oscar, 14, Claria, 11; Martin, 10; Bertha, 6. I believe that the posting just previous to this, of Emil John Gotsch/Gotch, is the son of this couple.
