William Waltz and Emma Vantries were my great-grandparents.
I am seeking any information - photos, history of either Emma or William H. Waltz, etc.
My mother was a Waltz, William and Emma were her grandparents, and her father, Emerald August Vantries Waltz, didn't speak of his parents and my mother said she didn't even know her grandfather's name until she was an adult.
I see someone named Tina posted a bit about Emma and said she was part Cherokee - if that is indeed a fact, that means I have a few drops of Cherokee blood as well, being a great-grandson of William and Emma.
I found a couple of small (smaller than wallet size) tin-types of a woman in a box of stuff my mother had from her mother, but I have no clue who it was. Some photos - actually most - are not marked.
I'd love to know more!
