I am looking for information about PETER MOOTZ, born 4 July 1820 in Luxembourg. He Emigrated to the US about 1847 and settled at first in Washington Co., then Ozaukee Co., Wisc. and about 1888 moved to McCook Co., SD

Peter married MARY HEGER 1859 in Wisc. She was born 9/11 Feb. 1843 in Luxembourg (or Metz) the daughter of NICHOLAS HEGER who emigrated about the same time and settled in the same place.

Would like to share any information I have and hope to make a connection with information where to start looking in Luxembourg.

Hope we connect, please e-mail me directly so I don't miss your response.

Peter Mootz was my great-grandfather. I have a photo of Mary Heger standing outside her first wood house, after moving from a sod house. My grandmother was Magdalena ("Lena") Mootz, who married Shirley William Lane, M.D. in the early 1900s, settling in Kankakee IL, where my mother, Margaret Mary Lane, still alive, was born. My mother, a retired physician, had two older siblings, Helen, a well-known amateur golfer until her tragic death in her early 20s in an auto accident. My uncle was also named Shirley William Lane. Lena, called "Luxie" by my grandfather, died in 1947, I believe, shortly before my parents married. According to my mom, now 84, there were 13 kids in her mom's family, with one of the boys drowningin the family farm pond. Lena was, at 16, the youngest teacher ever in one of the Dakotas.
Let me know how we're related!

I found your query on the Mootz family today. I am interested in hearing from you since my Grandfather, John Nicholus Mootz, married Caroline Tritz from St. Donatus, Iowa. He was born in Luxembourg and immigrated to Iowa.
