My Korth fmaily is also from Wisconsin in the Fond du Lac area. They originally came from Germany. If anyone is able to assist, I am trying to locate some of the decendants. My grandfather was an only child and is now deceased, but my gret grandfather was one of 6 children and so I am trying to see if I can get more infomormation on the other children. Thanks

Surnames: Korth, Frieburg
This is the correct census record for my grandfather John and his father. I was always told that his mother died when he was really young but everything I have been able to find shows his mother is Rose Frieburg, but the name Martha has been mentioned.

1940
Fond du Lac, Fond du Lac, Wisconsin
Herman Korth 62 b abt 1878 Germany, shade maker
Rose Korth 52 b abt 1888 Wisconsin
John Korth 26 born about 1914 in Wisconsin, attendant, filling station

My great grandfather is Herman Wilhelm. He was born 25 Jun 1877 in Germany. We are pretty confident his father was John and Mother Mary.

His siblings I think are:

Emily
Edward
Albert
Laura
Ottello

My dad has a recollection of having a great aunt named Otteleo and Laura, so I think this may be the right family.

My hope is to find some of the Korth descendents as there is limited information my dad got after his father died from their house.

Amazing! And how very kind of you to post this.

I hope the Korth family will see this. (I am a volunteer researcher, not related.) The Albert Korth at that address (your home) is the brother of Herman W. Korth, great-grandfather of blkbear81.
