Hi Bridget,

I don't know where you are looking in WI. for your family, but I just got back home from a search for my family in Wisconsin. (They are all over the State!) :-(

There are LENTZ names in the Pound/Coleman (Oconto Co) area of WI. One of my cousins live on Lentz Rd west of Pound and I saw the name in some of the cemeteries I was searching thru.

Hope this helps

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. hraab@powercom.net.
I'll try to help you--or steer you in the right direction.

Would you know if any of the boys would have moved to Indiana around the Martin CTY area in the year near 1923? They would have been around 35 years old at that time, app? And if so did he have a wife , children,occupation, etc! Thanks, Renee

Not sure if this is same family but my great grandfather was also William Lenz married to Minnie but her maiden name was Vetter according to their marriage license, and were married in Lind WI on 3/29/1902 and both died in Oshkosh. They had 13 children. I also find Maria Beckmann as william's mother, Henriette Diener as Minnie's mother. Is this same family? Please Email me at revusup@yahoo.com

"... There are lots of Lentz/Lenz family members in the Kenosha/Racine/Milwaukee area who are part of one family ..."

There are about 200 occurrences of Lentz / Lenz collected in "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950). There's a little overlap with Racine and Kenosha families found in the local German papers because some of them had a regional readership.

Indexing Milwaukee's German newspapers continuously since 2007 ...
