Trying to keep this in the forefront, one more time!

Still trying to verify the link between George F. BENZ b. 4/23/1838 in Osthofen, Germany, d. Jan. 1908 to Eliza BENZ
b. 9/8/1865 in Osthofen, Germany, d. 10/11/1954.

Eliza married Jacob Gerber, had two daughters and lived in Wells, MN (Faribault County) most of her married life.

George Benz was the father of George G. Benz who married Josephine Hamm. Josephine Hamm was the daughter of Hamm's Brewery founder Theodore Hamm.

I know that Eliza is somehow related to this family as my family has two Hamm's brewery calendars from the late 1800's that were sent to Eliza's family from the St. Paul Benz family.

I just want to verify the relationship of George to Eliza, I think he may have been her Uncle. Her parents were Jacob BENZ born 1827 and Anna ENDERS born 1824. Both born and I believe remained in Germany.

Please see my previous posts for more information.
