BUCHHOLZ, Bertha M. C. -Ann Arbor 1860's

Looking for relatives originating in Ann Arbor where family settled 1868/70. My ancestor's full name was Bertha Matilda Charlotte Buchholz (name spelling may have since changed). She had siblings & one brother was Charles Buchholz who married Augusta ? and died in 1870. The Bertha Matilda Caroline Christian names were given to eldest daughter for many generations back in Prussia where fam. spoke Low German & probably farmed.
Bertha married Richard Garibaldi Portwine in Ann Arbor, producing Bertha Caroline 12 Aug 1891 & Viola Eleanor 1893. Strike a familial chord with anyone?
