KALTZ in Michigan

KALTZ in Michigan

John George KALTZ with his wife Eva Margaret Kuenel(sic) immigrated about June, 1881, with two small children: Anna, about 1 1/2 years old and George John aged 2 months. They had two more children in Michigan: John W. and Rose. John George KALTZ's father was Albert KALTZ. John George drowned in the Black River near South Haven Michigan in 1892 when he was 36 years old. I am interested in knowing from where in Germany this family emigrated and the descendents of George John's first family.

I really don't have any input for you. However, my mother's maiden name was Kaltz. My maternal grandfather was named Joseph (born 1889/died 1977) and he grew up in Centerline, Michigan (Macomb County)back when it was farm land. He had numerous siblings. Two I remember from my childhood were his sisters Mildred and Ide who resided in Colorodo Springs. Do you have any background information on this Kaltz family?

Thanks for your quick reply. Any information you might have with regard to my family would be great. Let me tell you what I do know and we'll go from there. I obtained death records last year on my grandfather, Joseph Kaltz and grandmother Agnes. Joseph was born on Feb 28, 1889 and died on June 28, 1977 from chronic lymphocytic leukemia. His parents were Peter Kaltz and Catherine Hoffman. Agnes Kaltz was born on May 21, 1889 and died on February 6, 1942 from breast cancer which metastisized to her brain and spine. Her parents were Jacob Neideck (from Germany) and Amelia Groll. Both my grandparents are buried in Holy Sepulchre cemetary in Southfield Michigan. They had two daughters, my mother Grace (born May, 1919/died September 1959--married John Venn in 1956) and her sister Celesta (born December 1917/died April 1969). My mother's death was due to toxemia, her sister from leukemia. Both are buried in Holy Sepulchre. I know my grandfather had at least two sisters and one brother. The sisters who I visited as a child--lived in Colorodo Springs, Colorodo. One was named Ide (she never married) and the other Mildred (whose married name was Stockdale). I know my grandfather had at least one brother, whose name I'm guessing might have been Milton (his name appears on his death certificate as an informant). I have no background on my grandmother's siblings. I was born August 30, 1957 in Detroit and lived with my grandfather Joseph and my aunt Celesta after my mother died. When my aunt died in 1969 my father and stepmother sent me to boarding school. I never kept in touch with my grandfather except for a couple of times after that. He died while I was in college and my understanding is that during his illness his niece (Milton's daughter) took care of him. When he died, she and her family got his estate (he left no will) and lived in his home in Southfield. She lived there until the late 1980's as I recall. It was by pure accident that my local paper ran an open house add on the home and I recognized the address. My husband and I went to the open house and took along pictures of the home that I had to show that I had grown up there. I mentioned who I was to the agent and left my phone number--thinking that my long lost cousin might call out of curiosity. It never happened. Thanks again for the follow-up.

The only thing I can add to your lineage is the following: I show Joseph's brother was named Peter Amandus Kaltz (b.10/21/1887, d. June 1971). He married Estelle Limberger (b. 5/29/1891, d. Jan 1974).
They had five children: Lorraine; Mary Louise (m. August Konkel); Leo (b.Feb 18,1914, d.Dec 1971); Ralph C. (b.Oct 12, 1916); and, Milton (b.Apr 1, 1922, d.June 1987).

Thanks for the information. By the way, how and why did you get interested in the Kaltz name?

My son found your message from 2 years ago and forwarded to me. Jacob Neideck was my great uncle-his brother was Charles Neideck, my grandfather. About 20 years (before the internet) I did a lot of research on the Neideck history and could share a lot of info. If you are still there and interested, let me know.
