Hi. There are lots of Lentz/Lenz family members in the Kenosha/Racine/Milwaukee area who are part of one family. The name is spelled with a "t" in some circles. The family came over from Germany in August, 1852; they settled at Brighton, Kenosha Co., WI. The two parents, Johann Joseph and Anna Maria Molitor Lenz, had at least 8 children, and these children moved away and many had large families.
There is a large Lenz project being worked on at this time--perhaps your history coincides with ours! Let me know. firstname.lastname@example.org
I'll try to help you--or steer you in the right direction.
