I started looking into my Uncle's family in Chicago around 1918. I found his father was William MATZ/METZ who was born in Crown Point, LAKE CO. INDIANA 1885. He had a brother John. I found his father was also John Matz, PROBABLY born around 1860 in Indiana, I think. Johns wife was born JoAnna aka Hannah, was born in Germany about 1862.
No maiden name given. She came to U.S. about 1880. She may have married John in Germany.
Does anyone have relatives that lived in INDIANA & ILLINOIS? firstname.lastname@example.org
