I am trying to get more information on the Korth family, especially

Herman Wilhelm Korth (1877 - 1972) He was born in Germany and his family came to Fond du Lac, WI in 1879. I believe he is the son on John (Johan?) and Mary.

He married Rose Freiburg and had one son my grandfather John Korth.

Any information I can get on Wilhelm, his realtives and especially his wives would be appreciated as my grandfather was an only child and due to his mother and step-mother's early death as well as his my resources are rather limited.

I have found more information on my grandfather's family, before they came over to the United States when he was 3, but I am still looking to try to find more.

Herman Wilhelm Korth was the son of Johann Korth and Maria Damrau. His grandparents were Gottfried Korth and Anne Rieme. This is as far back as I have been able to get.

In my research I have stumbled upon a lot of Korth's from Fond Du Lac, but I have been unable to connect them to my family. I would love to find out if Johann had siblings, or more information on Gottfried as I would love to be able to expand my Korth family.

Any help would be appreciated.
