My father was also William Christian Kanz. My Grand father was Wilhelm(William) Kanz who was a youngest brother to the Christian Kanz you mention in posting. Other brothers and sisters also born in Mramorach. Parents were Henrich and Elizabeth(nee Gutwein) Kanz. Because this branch of the Kanz family continued to name their sons after ancestors(Henrich, Wilhelm,Christian) it makes for some confusion , but also makes it easier to connect direct relatives. If you or any one else wants more info, please contact me. It appears that the sons of Henrich immigrated to the US and many relatives in Minnesota, Ohio and Washington.
