My husband's Kreitz ancestors are from Roetgen, Germany. The earliest we have is Peter Kreitz, who died in Germany 16 September 1787. He had a son, Jakob Johann Kreitz, who died 27 July 1836 in Roetgen. His son, Johann Mathias Kreitz, came to Texas in 1844 with his wife and most of his sons and daughters. If this ties in with your family, I would love to work with you. Gaynell

Gale, I think I have a match. Sorry for not responding, my e-mail address was wrong and I just happened to be re-checking my posts. I have:

Petrus Kreitz born Dec 23, 1716 who died on around September 18th 1785. He was maired to Gertrud Reinarz they had 11 children, one of whom is Johann Jacob Kreitz, born Dec 11, 1756 who died July 22, 1836. Johann Jacob married Petronella Cremer. They too had 11 children, one of whom was Johann Mathias who was born on May 26, 1785. He married Maria Elisabeth Rothscheid in 1844 from TEXAS!!!! They had 8 children. I'll just list the first names. Carl Theodor, Franz Wilhelm, Maria Elisabeth, Johann Wilhelm, Anna, conrad, Friedrich, Helena. I have birth dates and death dates.

This family goes back more and expands some few hundred families. I hit jackpot a few years ago and the entire Kreitz family from Roetgen is intertwined considerably.

All I know is from family history handed down from my great-aunt. She stated that Philip Kreitz was born 1807 in Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and died 1859 in Navarre, Stark County, Ohio. Her married Margaret Bernard born 1820 in D'Arlone, Belgium and died October 1907 in Navarre, Stark County, Ohio. They were married 1842 in St. John's Catholic Church, Canton, Stark County, Ohio. Is there any connection with the Kreitz family you're researching?

Barbara, This is definitely my family. My son was named after his grandfather, who was named after his grandfather, who was named after the Philip you mention. Currently I have about the same information you have on this couple. Do you have any other information? Can we share?

I look forward to hearing from you.

My grandmother was Agnes Josephine Kreitz daughter of William Kreitz and Lucy Miller. Agnes was a sister of Philip Seraphim Kreitz. They were children of Philip Kreitz and Margaret Bernard. Are these the Philips you are referring to?
I'd be glad to share any information I have with you and vice versa. You can contact me at fordhere@aol.com. I have a narrative history written by Gertrude Kreitz in 1921. If you don't have a copy I'd be happy to send you one.

Dear ikreitz,
I would be very happy to know if one of my ancestors (Joannis Wilhemmus Kreitz) could be one of Petrus and Gertud's 11 children.

According to a swedish marriage certificate Joannis Wilhelmus got married in Stockholm (Sweden) in 1769 and his origins is given as from Aachen (Germany and close to Roetgen) and a widover (so when he came to Sweden he married a second time).

I would assume that Johann Wilhem would have been born around 1740.

I look forward to any reply (I just realized this thread is 10 years old!).

Kind Regards,
Mats Gustavsson

In my family we have Petrus Cremer, born around 1646, marrying Anna Kreitz. Their son , Antonious Cremer (1683-1765) married a Mary Magdalene Kreitz (1685-1769) and moved from Roetgen to Somerset, England, where their son married an English woman, Mary Padgett. Petrus Cremer is a direct ancestor of my Father's. His Grandmother was Elizabeth Burton Craymer. I would be very interested to know occupation svand what brought the family to Somerset and eventually Bristol.
