The Kautz family of Edigheim, Ger. and Meigs Co,Oh

  of 162

In 1833 and 1834, three Kautz brothers left the village of Edigheim in the kingdom of Bavaria. Wendel was first to arrive in Wheeling, West Va in 1833 at the age of 26.The following year, he ws joined by Abraham and George. Abraham, was accompanied by his three children, Wendel, Margaretha and Anna Maria. George,arrived with his wife Sophia and two younger daughters: Margaretha Elisabetha and Sophia. They floated down the Ohio river to Meigs County, Ohio. Wendel met and married Magdalena Roll. I have the family tree for eleven generations, beginning with Hans Jorg Kautz who lived in Edigheim from 1670 to 1747. The Kautz is mentioned in the town records as early as 1448. This information is by Richard Kautz, my relative. The village of Edighein is on the west bank of the Rhine River
