I see, from a 2001 post that you are related to the Fussville (Menomenee Falls now)WI Schmitz Family. I am a gggranddaughter of Gottfried (1809-1884) Schmitz who married Mary Catherine Kertzman (1801-1869). They came to the US in Aug., 1946 and settled in Fussville.
Their sons, Gottfried and Matthias, with their families, moved to Shelby Co., IL in 1866.
I have information that Gottfried (1809-1869)parents were Mathias and Anne Sophie Scheben Schmitz who did not come to the US but their baptismal info was found in St. Martin'a Catholic Church in Wormersdorf, Germany. The father of Anne Sophie was Gottfried Scheben. Do you have any other ancestral information about these Schmitz/Scheben families?
My personal email is email@example.com
I will appreci-ate any info you can give me.
