I was very glad to get your reply. I also heard from a man in WI who is doing a family tree on his wifes mother. She is Agatha Kautzer who had a brother by the name of Wiliam. I have been keeping in contact with him. Thank you for the information about the William Kautzer in Yuma, Az. I will look into it. The name Kautzer is rare and it is good to know there are more Kautzers out there then I thought.
