I am looking for relatives of my father, William Kautzer. We know very little about him, as he died when I was very young and did not relate to my mother his family history. What I do know is that he was born in Wisconsin on June 8, 1892. to Martin and Mary Kautzer(maiden name Markee). His father was from Germany and his Mother was born in New York. He had one brother that we know of and two aunts in New Mexico, one went by the name of Kent.He was in world war1 and severed his basic training at Fort Lewis Washington.

Hi Mary, I may be able to help you. I'm trying to put together a Kautzer and Hennes family tree. My wife is a Hennes and her grandfather, John Hennes married a Agatha Kautzer who is William Kautzer's sister. What was your mother's maiden name? William was married twice. Does the name Contreras or English mean anything to you? We may be able to help each other out. E-mail me back at: zinsliw@uwstout I live in Wisconsin. Send me your e-mail address or your home address if you are willing to continue,please.

Hi William,
Your message is very interesting. We do not know anything about my fathers side of the family. We did not know if he had any siblings or if he had been married before. What little information I have about my father is from papers that my mother had and what little he told us about his family. My mothers maiden name was Doris Vivian Kelly. I am sending away for my fathers birth certificate from Wisconsin in the hopes that it will give me more information. I do know his mothers and fathers names. His father was Martin Kautzer and his mother was Mary Markee. I also got a message from some one in New York that gave me information on Mary Markee and am sending for her birth certificate also. Mary Markee was born in New York and Martin Kautzer was born in Germany. As for the names Contreras and English, this is very strange. As they are the married names of my two sisters. I have started a family tree on Myfamily.com. I will send you an invitation from myfamily.com if you would like to view it. My email address is: cruz_m@msn.com
thank you very much for your reply.

Hello Mary,
I am the grand-daughter of another Kautzer from Wisconsin. My grandfather's name was Sidney Kautzer. He lived in Ripon, WI until he passed away 12 years ago. My grandmother, Esther, is still living there with my Aunt Lou. I am without much information about my ancestors as well, but thought it was interesting there is another Kautzer from WI out there. My father's name is Howard and lives in Yuma AZ. There is also a man named William Kautzer in Yuma, who is of no relation to my family. Maybe to yours? His phone number is listed in information if you really want to look into this further.

Hi Joey,
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.

I am looking for more information with Ripon, WI Kautzers. I am looking for Emma Kautzer, married William Lietz (his first marriage) in the 1908/1909 time frame. She bore a daughter, Viola Minnie Martha Lietz, in 1909. William Lietz filed for divorce (reason: desertion) and it was granted no later than 1910. This all occurred in the Ripon, Fond du Lac county, Wisconsin area. Please contact me either on this message board or at n.lietz@comcast.net.

I have no information on Emma Kautzer, I have a lot of information on the Kautzers, descendants of Ignatz & Katherina Kautza. You may want to check out the following web site.
