Have info on Margaret Stark's ancestors and peers. Looking for her parent's (Matthias, b.1810, and Catharina, b. 1811, Schmitz) place and date of death.

This is a stretch I know, but here goes:

My mother was a Schmitz.
Her father's (Ray) aunt (Anna Grube) married a Stark (before 1896).
They all lived in Outagamie County, namely Appleton and Apple Creek.

Might there be any connect with your Catharina Schmitz? Catharina (that spelling) appears in several places within the Emmerich (Ray's grandfather) Schmitz family tree.
Plus I have terrible luck tracing the Schmitz family so I'll try at anything.

My Schmitz came from Orenhofen, Germany in 1848 and went to Milwaukee. His name was Mathias and I traced them back to late 1600's I don't recognize your other names so It must be a different family
His daughter married a Stark and they settled in Appleton and are buried at St. Joseph's Cemetery.

Thanks for the quick reply - you don't always get that.

I see that Orenhofen was in Prussian Rheinland. (at least http://feefhs.org/maps/gerw/gw-rhein.html shows that). My Emmerich Schmitz (1829-1897- an only son family history has it) was, according to Census records, from "Prussia".

He came to the USA before 1860 - Milwaukee - and there married an Elizabeth Flick (c1835-1897) from Baden about 1860. They had a daughter in Milwaukee. They moved to Appleton about 1864 where my g-grandfather John M. Schmitz (and his older sister Ann) was born. Emmerich and Elizabeth ran a tavern (such great relatives :) and later a farm in Appleton. John M Schmitz's (1869-1937) wife, Ida Grube, had a sister Anna who married a Carl Stark(1869-1936) in 1895, probably in Appleton.

And thus the reason I replied to the original message.

Thanks again - and if you ever do see anything on an Emmerich Schmitz..........

Hello, I hope you're still watching this board... I am interested in proving your Emmerich Schmitz is related to Mathias Schmitz and his wife Catherine Mick. It seems they are buried right near each other in St. Josephs' cemetery in Appleton, and I am interested in finding all of the Schmitz siblings...
