Gratz,Degner, southwestern WI
Posted by: Dave Thomas Date: March 30, 2001 at 23:00:00
  of 39

My grandmother was Sophia Gratz.

Her parents were Lewis Gratz, b. 2/27/1862 at Waldwick, WI, died: 1/22/1934. He married Mary Degner on 7/6/1892.

The parents of Lewis Gratz were Eustice Gratz and Sophie Cowfman (I'm sure this must be Kauffmann, Kaufmann, or Kauffman). Both were born in Germany, but I have no more information.

Mary Degner was born in Shelligen Thall, Germany on 4/10, 1873, and her parents were George Degner and Margaret (?).

Any information on the Gratz or Degner families from Germany in Wisconsin would be appreciated.
