Looking for information on German family of Charles Albert Vahl. Born October 31, about 1879-1880 in Kutzan (I'm not sure if this location even exists - can't find anything on google about Kutzan), Germany - perhaps it is Rutzow and not Kutzan. Father - William, emmigrated to US around 1885. Lived in West Town area of Chicago and Oak Park, Illinois. Was a wholesale cigar/candy salesman. Died 1928. Can't find any records of him prior to 1901 when he married Lillian Thompson. Any information on relation to other Vahls(or variations thereof) out there would be greatly appreciated.
