My gggrandmother was Catharina Boehm.
(November 01, 1841-December 03, 1918). She
was Catholic. Married George Ott.
Katharina Boehm was born November 1, 1841
in Bavaria, Germany--on her death certificate
her father is listed as Thomas Bolker--she
married George Ott and they lived in
Milwaukee, Wisconsin..She died
December 3, 1918--anyone related to this
line???

One of Catharina's daughters was Anne Ott,
she married a George Ott in Milwaukee, WI.
I have an old autograph book of hers which
lists a "Rosie Boehm" as a cousin...
I am also researching the following related
German/Prussian/Baverian/Luxembourg names:
Becker, Bittner, Boehm, Bolker, Hoppe,
Klienschmidt, Kraus, Linger, Meerschaert,
Michels, Ott, Schottler, Schramm,
Shubert, Tiegs, Wendte;
and the following Polish-German names:
Czyaplewski, Garski, Geyso, Hilkoske (Hills),
Jurska, Kujath, Lazinski, Nowak,
Rogowski (Rogers), Visniskie, Wisniewski
(Wise) and Witkowski. Please contact me if
you have any related families.
Thank you,

Surnames: Witkowski
Trying to find my gr-gr-gr-gr grandfather and family with last name WITKOWSKI.

They seem to be the first Witkowski family in Toronto around 1860s onward. Louis Witkowski was born Poland abt 1831 and starting in 1870 was listed in Toronto city directories as a Tailor. I have census information on them from 1871 and 1881 - here are the family members (birth years are approximate):

- Louis b 1831 (d 1879/1880)
- Annie / Amelia b 1840 in Ireland
- Joseph b 1861
- Mary Ann b 1863
- Leopold b 1864
- Louisa b 1866
- Louis b 1868
- Kosmies / Cashmire b 1871
- Antonie b 1874
- John b 1879

Any information all would be appreciated. The last entry I have for them is from 1898 Toronto directory that lists Annie as Louis' widow.

John Witkowski married Kathleen Cummings, born in Ireland abt 1874, died in Toronto 11 Oct 1915 at 109 Logan Ave. Parents were Laurence Cummings and Mary Robinson.

Any connection to the family you are researching?

You may have collected them already, but I've indexed multiple family death notices and an obit. w/photo for your Katherine Ott, née Boehm. These are some of the 300 entries or references from the local German papers collected in "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950).

"... Becker, Bittner, Boehm, Bolker, Hoppe, Klienschmidt, Kraus, Linger, Meerschaert, Michels, Ott, Schottler, Schramm, Shubert, Tiegs, Wendte; and the following Polish-German names: Czyaplewski, Garski, Geyso, Hilkoske (Hills), Jurska, Kujath, Lazinski, Nowak, Rogowski (Rogers), Visniskie, Wisniewski (Wise) and Witkowski ..."

There are about 175 entries or references to either Boehm or Böhm -- be sure to check both spellings in any of Milwaukee's record collections!

Most, if not all of the Germanic surnames you've listed, and some of those Polish names are also found in the growing index.
