My grandfather was Karl F. Gerbitz who came to USA in May 1893 with wife Bertha A. Lohry. They came from the city of Kallies in Kreis Dramburg Germany . This area is Southeast of Stettin about 60 miles.I have not been able to connect my family with other Gerbitz families in Dodge Co and whom emigrated from the Naugard area which is only about 45 miles northwest of Kallies.Karl was born in 1860 in Germany and died in Milwaukee in 1927.Bertha Lohry born in 1862 in Germany and died in 1930 in Milwaukee.

There are death notices and Danksagung (family thanks) published in local German papers for both Bertha and Karl Gerbitz. Also earlier notices for an Adolph Gerbitz.

These are indexed in "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950).

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