Hello, I believe that Willam A Ganzer however according to the info that I have was born in 1849. He was 3rd oldest child and brother to Charles born 1858. Charles was my Great Grandfather, his son Paul Andrew 2/26/1882 who was my grandfather, one of his children was my mother Anna Mae Ganzer,born 6/9/40. She was born late in his life and she died 02/14/2008. The stories that I have heard say that the Ganzers came from Denton Tx and you can see Ganzer road above I35s..I know exactly were the Ganzer Cemetery is in Lees Summit Mo..My mother told me that her father told her that his mother Augsta used to babysit Jesse James. I have a picture of Augusta and others but do not know the names.

Hello, Just found this and wanted to let you know that the Ganzers of Denton Co.,Texas are the children of Andres Ganzer of Lee Summit, Mo. The father and mother of the Ganzer clan are buried in the Ganzer Cem. in Lee Summit. The family came to Texas through Galveston in the mid 1800's. First they settled in South Texas (Schertz, Texas) the came to Dallas, Texas in the 1870 where the had a family mercantile store in downtown Dallas. The mother of the clan was said to not like the rough-talking cowboys for the the family moved to land around Lee Summit. However several of the older children stayed in Texas and moved to Denton, Denton Co., in the mid-to-late 1880's. They were one of several German families who settled north of Denton. My husband's mother was Mary Edna Ganzer and we still have the family farm which fronts I-35. The Ganzers have a long and illustrious history in Denton Co., and some of the granite on the Denton Co. Courthouse was mined from the Ganzer homestead, north of town. Also, the son of Andres Ganzer started the milling company which is now know as Morrison Mills in Denton. My husband and I have been to the Ganzer Cem. in Lee Summit several times. The interesting fact is my German family (Oesch) moved to Texas in 1953 from Lee Summit, Mo. At the base of our farm is the Blue Mound United Methodist Church and Cem. where many of the Ganzers are buried as they were one of the founding families of this church. It is abour 5 miles north of Denton on I-35. Hope this helps clarify some of the family history.
