Kilgus Family

Look for the Kilgus family in Astoria New York and Brooklyn New York in the 1800s. My Dad and I traced the family to Germany and he met the descendants of Christian Kilgus (sometimes spelled with two s's). I haven't worked with this in about 20 years and would have to find my records. The Kilgus family in Brooklyn was not closely related as far as I could tell. There was also a Kilgus family in New Jersey that was very prominent. My branch of the family was not. There were two brothers who both lived in Astoria, New York and each had children. The family named their children Johann Christian, Johann Georg, etc. I will try to find my documents, but as I said, it's been a long time. I'll ask my Dad if he has any additional information. There is also a Paul Kilgus who was a major league pitcher about 15 years ago and there were a group of Kilgus' who moved into dairy country up the Hudson and then over. I know this isn't much but I'm speaking from memory only. Regards, Kathleen Kilgus Chamberlin
