Uhrmann or Uhrman

Surnames: Uhrmann, Uhrman, Ritzinger
I am looking for information on my Great-grandfather Mathias Ritzinger who emigrated from Munich,Germany in about 1889-1890 and settled in the Milwaukee, WI area. He was born on 4/3/1868 in Munich. I would be interested in any information available on his parents, siblings etc. either in Germany or in the U.S. He worked as a brewer and later in life, he owned a coal company on 24th and Cherry St. in Milwaukee. He died on 5/17/1935 and is buried at Calvary Cemetery in Milwaukee.

Mathias married Mary Uhrmann (or Uhrman) 9/29/1891 in Milwaukee. They had somewhere between 7 and 10 children, of which only two survived to adulthood. Mary Uhrmann was born in Garmisch, Bavaria, Germany on 3/21/1872 and died in Waukesha, WI on 8/3/1963. I do not have information on her parents, but I know she had the following siblings: Joseph b. 3/29/1873 in Bavaria, d. 1/8/1947 in Milwaukee, a sister whose name is unknown who became a Catholic Nun (Sister Emmanuella) b. Unknown, d. 1/13/1955 in Waukesha, WI, a sister Kate (Katherine) b. 7/1884 in Bavaria, d. Unknown (she married a Emil Burgermeister about 1909-1910 and lived in Milwaukee, and a sister Anna b. 12/28/1889 in Wisconsin, d. 5/1969 in Milwaukee. Any available information on her parents, other siblings or her children would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much. Are you descended from the Uhrmann/Uhrman or the Ritzinger line?

Surnames: Ritzinger Uhrmann
Mathias & Maria (Uhrmann) Ritzinger published death notices and a public thanks (Danksagung) in Milwaukee's German papers for their infant son Clarence Friedrich (1 yr old). Many years later, Mathias' death notices were published in these papers. This information is collected in "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950).

It may be a fine line for some, but the German-American papers publish memorials to the deceased. The English language papers publish information.

Not at this time; this isn't a Mormon/Ancestry project. A printed version is cataloged at the local public library. But indexing has continued since the last update there in 2010.
