My wife is Kathy (Miescke) Tellstrom and she has relatives in both the MARQUARDT and REETZ families connecting with her MIESCKE family in Fall Creek, Eau Claire Co., and Chippewa Falls, Chippewa Co. Do you have parent names for your Ernest Rudolph Reetz or Ida Bertha Marquardt? My records to not show either of their names so we should exchange further information in order to determine a connection. I would be happy to share any information I have. I do have extensive records from St. James Trinity Lutheran Church in Fall Creek and St. John's Lutheran Church in the Town of Lincoln. I do recall seeing some births, deaths and marriages listed in these resources for REETZ and MARQUARDT. Let's swap details and see if we can make the connections. Jim Tellstrom, Sturgeon Bay, WI

I have a Great Aunt on my Mothers side that married a William REETZ. Her name was Mary SCHMIDT b14 Nov 1869,Town of Lincoln, d 5 Jan 1942 in Eau Claire, Eau Claire County.
There is no other info I have on the REETZ name so for now i can not help you out but maybe you can shed so info my way on the name. The Schmidts were members of St Johns Luth and I also have relatives as members of St James Luth there in Fall Creek. My Aunt Dorothy Schmidt married one William VOIGT from St James Luth.
I myself was born and raised in Eau Claire and I have a few relatives still up there in Eau Claire County and Chippewa County.
All the surnames are connected to me thru the SCHMIDT'S
If I have anything you could use let me know okay?
GOOD LUCK in your search

I have an Emilie Reetz married to Herman Garbe (son of Frederick Garbe), so I think there is a connection. Do you have any additional information on this branch of the Reetz family? Thanks so much.
