Raymond Lenz, born 5 Dec 1823 near Marienbad, Bohemia, came to the United States on 14 September 1854, departing from Bremen, Germany. He was married in 1845 to Barbara Fishbach or Fishbath who was born 9 July 1834. With them on the ship was his daughter Anna, born 20 April 1848 and a son, J Lenz, born 1852, who died of injuries from rough weather on the voyage.
If anyone has any information about this family I would be very grateful.

Robin,

According to the family tree you posted on this sight, I believe that Raymond Lenz & Barbara Fishbach might be my ggg grandparents. They had a daughter Frances who was married to Joseph Wolfe (my gg grandparents). They both died in Ellendale, ND. They had a son named Alfred Wolfe b. in Conde, SD on 19 Nov 1893 who married Genevieve Kerr on 12 Jul 1921. Alfred died in 1969 and Genevieve died in 1961. Both are buried in Ellendale, ND.

I'm curious to know how you know so much info about Raymond & Barbara! I would love it if you would share!

Have a wonderful day!

Amy

Your GGGrandmother Frances is the sister of my GGGrandmother Anna Lenz. In fact, Anna named her own daughter Frances and that's my GGrandmother.

Love to compare notes with you,
Robin

That's interesting! Frances named her first daughter Anna! I've asked my mom to provide me with any info she has. Unfortunately, I know she doesn't have much and her parents are both deceased.

How did you find the info on France's parents? Was it through research or passed down?

I'll let you know what I find as soon as I get the info from my mom!

Take care,
Amy

Raymond Lenz and Barbara Fishbach Lenz were my great-great grandparents. They came to the USA from Marienbad in the early 1800's. It was their son Franz who died on the ship coming over. Anna, Joseph and Anton (my great-grandfather) all made it to America. They went to Wisconsin then Stacy, Iowa. They went by covered wagon to Conde, South Dakota, Spink County, with the Steffes family. Raymond fought in the Civil War and is buried in the Catholic cemetery in Turton, SD. "Tony" and Joe were leaders in their community of Conde. Tony and Gertrude Steffes Lenz had 9 children, two died of the black measles in the late 1800's. All of Tony's children earned college degrees. Otto, Joe and Bernard were doctors. Tony and Gertrude are buried in Conde, SD along with their daughter, Maryanna (Maude)Lenz King, my grandmother.

Hi, Amy, They ARE your great-great- grandparents and I have a family picture with Frances in the upper right hand side of the photo. She was very beautiful. I am related to her brother, Anton (Tony).

Hi, Robin
And Anna's brother Anton (Tony)- my great grandfather-named his daughter Maryanna for his sister Anna!! Tony gave my grandma Maryanna the nickname Maude.

So interesting!
