Michael Folz & Elizabeth Griswold 1857-65
Posted by: Peter May (ID *****8518) Date: December 25, 2002 at 18:41:23
  of 566

Michael Folz emigrated from Bavaria to Stark Co, Ohio in 1853. He somehow moved to Logansport, Indiana and married Elizabeth Griswold (other spellings of her last name include Grisley on her wedding certificate and death certificate; Griesel on Michael's Military Pension Records and Trissel on Micheal's obituary; however her father Conrad Griswold and brothers, John Henry, William P, John A, & Charles all used Griswold)
Michael joined Company E, 29th Regiment, Indiana Volunteer Infantry and served for 3 years in the Army f the Potomac, 12th Corps.
After mustering out in Sept 1869, he moved with family to near Howard Lake, Minnesota, and lived there untill he died in 1913.
I am looking for any links he might have had with relatives already living in the U.S. before he emigrated.

I am also searching for siblings and parents of Conrad Griswold b. 1810 Hesse Germany. I don't know when exactly he died, but he was living in Victor twp. Wright Co, Minn in the 1870 and 1880 census.
His wife Martha Lundgren b. 1812 emigrated with him with one son, John Henry, in the late 1830's.

Likewise any connections would be appreciated.
