Surnames: Wenzel, Van Hyde, Griest
I am searching for information on Kate Wenzel. At one time she went by the name Kitty. She married Oliver Edward Griest 1 Jan 1876. She was born 5 Aug 1852 in Milwaukee, Waukesha, WI. Her step father's name was John Wenzel. Her mother was Mary Ann Van Hyde. I don't know if that was her maiden name or her first married name. I am looking for Kate's birth father and more information on her mother. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

"Kate Wenzel ... was born 5 Aug 1852 in Milwaukee, Waukesha, WI. Her step father's name was John Wenzel. Her mother was Mary Ann Van Hyde ... I am looking for Kate's birth father and more information on her mother."

There are death notices in Milwaukee's German newspapers for a Maria Wenzel, née der Heyde, 40 yr; survived by Joh. Karl Wenzel. This may or may not be a match to this 1999 query?

"Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950).
