I have a brief notation of a Christian Etz. Time frame is wrong but this is what I have. "the 1 March 1811 will of Christian Etz of "Canajohary" mentions his sisters Mary Vanderwerke (who is Anna Maria Etz who marries a Martinus Vanderwerken) Anna is born 23 May 1748. One of Martin and Anna's children end up in Kalamazoo in 1838.

Surnames: Etzel, Obilborger, Reith
Seeking contact with anyone who may be researching the following lines:

Born 23 April 1904; baptized 1 May 1904: Clarence Josephus ETZEL son of Nicolai ETZEL and Margaretha
OBILBORGER; Godparents/Sponsors: Joseph ETZEL and Margaretha OBILBORGER (nee REITH)

Extracted from the records of St. Martin's Catholic Church, a mission church of St. Anthony's in Fussville, Waukesha County, longer in existence. Was located 2 blocks east of Timmerman Field on south side of Appleton Avenue in an
area known as Granville. Engelsburg families also attended church here. Neither communities exist anymore and the old
records have been sent to St. Agnes' Catholic church in Butler, Waukesha County, Wisconsin.

I am related to a Veronica Reith who married a Patrick McCalvey. They had a daughter named Regina McCalvey who was
born in 1846 and married an Antonii Brahm at St Anthony's Catholic Church, Fussville, Waukesha County, Wisconsin on
November 12, 1867.

If anyone has this family in their database, or knows of any of their descendents, please contact me at:
Thank you in advance,

Are you still looking for information about Christian Etz? Christian, Jr. who died about 1812 was the brother of my 4th great grandmother, Elizabeth Etz, who married Johann (John) Walrad (Walradt, Walrath). I have copies of the wills of both Christian, Jr. and his Father.

Surnames: Etzel, Winter
In my family I have a Christopher Etzel m. Maia Topp in Hartford Wisconsin in 1866. Is Hartford near any of these places you listed, Susan?

Christopher was one of 6 sons [Christopher, Frank, Joseph, Albert, August & Philip] of Jacob Etzel and Margareth Winter who were from Saxe-Weimar, Germany and settled in New York City.

I am a descendant of Frank.

Hartford in only one County away--and was on a major road-way and railway west of it is very possible..I have relatives from other towns around the Hartford area, as well..seems to me that onw of the Castenholz/Kastenholz line settled there...Hartford is just off the old ..darn it--I can't think of the name of it--(Watertown Plank Road) but the major road from Milwaukee to Watertown in Jefferson/Dodge County...the main spur of the Railroad going north-west to Minneapolis/St. Paul also ran thorugh this area.

There may have been some related BRAHMs and LAUS's there as well...
