Prinz Family in Douglas County

Surnames: PRINZ, MOHR, STAHL, KRANBECK, BARTELS, BOTTCHER, SCHRUM, FLECK, WHITTEGAR, ELSMAN, OTTE

I am looking for descendants of August Frederick Nicolaus PRINZ, married to Henrietta STAHL; Anna Elise Catherine PRINZ, married to Henry MOHR; and Wilhelmina Marie Julia PRINZ, married to John Kranbeck. August, Anna and Wilhelmina were brother and sisters, from who settled in Douglas County, Nebraska, near Omaha, perhaps Millard, about 1870. Some of their descendant names were BARTELS, BOTTCHER, SCHRUM, FLECK, WHITTEGAR, ELSMAN and OTTE.

A family story mentions a "Mohr Cemetery, Millard, Nebraska, the Prinz family cemetery." August, Anna and Wilhelmina were from Flensburg, Schlesvig Holstein, Germany. August' first marriage was to Katherine Langfelt in 1869. Their first child was named Julia. Katherine died at the birth of their second child.

I would appreciate information on any of the above. Thank you.

I am also looking for a Henry Mohr who would have been the father to Herman Robert Mohr 6/9/1878 born in Osmond, Pierce, NE. The counties he lived in are close to Douglas so I thought I'd write, maybe there is a connection.

Marcus OTTE b. 1888 m. Loretta I. PRINZ.
Have very sketchy information on the PRINZ side, but willing
to share what I have.
Could the cemetery have possibly been Voss-Mohr?

Surnames: BOETTCHER, PRINZ, WYATT, DOWNER
Agatha Prinz was married to Henry Boettcher, my great grandfather. Both Agatha and Henry died in Douglas County. My grandfather, Arnold August BOETTCHER was born in Sarpy County in 1901 and married Helen Marie WYATT, daughter of John Nathaniel WYATT and Stella Marie DOWNER.

I am interested in any traces preceding those I've mentioned above, particularly the immigration of Henry Boettcher.

I will be visiting Omaha soon and would take time to check the cemetary for grave sites. It is just two blocks from my son's home, and is located on "Q" street at about 138th. It is Millard. I just happen to read your query while searching Douglas Co.
