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.
