Does anyone connect to the family of Batham Fetz found on the 1900 census of Emmet Co (Petosky) Michigan?

Batham was married to Ellen M. ___? both born in Germany. He was born 1853 and she in 1856 according to estimation of this census. Their children:

John P. born 1880 Germany
Frank X. 1882 MI
Herman 1884 MI
Phillip 1887 MI
Emma A. 1889 MI
Maggie H. 1893 MI

Census states Batham and Ellen were married 21 years and had 7 children with 6 living. He came to America in 1867, she in 1872. He stated he had been here for 33 years and she for 28 years. However, John was listed as being born in Germany 1880.

By 1910 Emmet Co. MI, Batham is widowed but sons John, Frank, Hermon and daughter Margaret are still in the home. John listed as divorced. Frank listed as married one time for seven years (no wife in the home with him)Herman and Margaret were single.

In 1920, Hermen Fett/Fetz had married Martha Beach and living in Detroit (Wayne Co) MI. Herman and Martha had daughter, Elizabeth.

Thanks,
Margaret
