I am the daughter of this Henry Charles Betz...he was actually born in Pagoda, Colorado, near Mount Harris. Although he died in Crescent City, his residence was Brookings, Curry County OR.
Our ancestor is also a Henry Betz, born Baden Germany in 1831, and moved to El Dorado KS.
My paternal grandfather was born Charley Betz, 1878, in El Dorado KS... but changed his name to Charles Henry Betz. Apparently this took place before he joined the 21st Kansas Volunteers, Company H, for the Spanish American War (The 21st and Company H never went overseas).
My paternal grandmother was Lydia Mae Kerns, of Snowshoe, PA.
I welcome any correspondence...
My maternal line is Nelson and Sole, Cambridgeshire, England.
