My uncle's name was Charles B. Herzig. He just passed away in Nov 1999. His father was Frank Herzig. Frank's father was Charles H. Herzig who, I just learned 5 minutes ago, was born in Cleaveland, Ohio.

Thanks for answering my query. I sure hope my great-grandfather is in your list of family members His name was Charles HERZIG, born in Ohio around 1870's/1880's. I found him in the 1900 or 1910 Arizona Federal Census as a Miner. I also found that while in Cochise Co. Arizona, he married the daughter of a wealthy family from Palouse City, WA. Her name was Tessie POWERS. I've always been told our family name was HERTZIG and when they came to America, it changed to HERZIG. But now I think some of the family kept HERTZIG. If you think we have a match, please e-mail me at
Again, thanks for the info.

HERZIG, Anna Mary

I am looking for Anna Mary Herzig. She married George Ed Palmer and had at least one child, Homer Weston Palmer, born abt 1890. We have no other info on her or her family. Homer wound up in Iowa working for the railroad and died at the age of 26. I don't even know where to starting looking for Anna or her family. Just wondered if you happened to have an Anna Mary in your family tree. Thank you, Sandi

I don't know where my Anna Mary Herzig came from. How old was your Anna Marie Herzig when she came from Switzerland. I am looking for an Anna who could have had a Palmer son about 1990. Thank you.

Hertzig/Herzig in process. I am at the Family History Library in SLC, working on extending the family line via the parish registers (here on microfilm). It is slow going, since the fancy German lettering makes the reading difficult (compounded by the old-style, formal German language). The line I am working on is my grandfather's. He was Jacob Herzig, born 21 May 1858 in Jaberg, Bern, Switzerland; the family immigrated to Tuscarawas County, NE Ohio.

By the way, the minutes of the Family reunion in 1917 note that the descendants of Johann and Magdalena (Jacob's parents) voted to change the spelling of the name from Herzig to Hertzig. Apparently, they had gotten tired of correcting everyone who heard the Swiss hard "z" and insisted on spelling the name Her-T-zig.

My husbands cousins in Cleveland, Ohio, were Morris and Meyer. They were brothers who married sisters. Morris married Tillie, or Tova(Jewish name) Susskind. Meyer married Rose Susskind. They had a son, Howard, Dau Bernice and Dau Shirley.Morris had 2 sons, Marvin and David. I these names are familiar to you, and you want more info, I have names of their descendants, but no addresses. Shirley
