Lenz family of Wisconsin
Posted by: Kurt Johnson (ID *****1663) Date: July 10, 2006 at 17:39:17

My wife and mother-in-law are wondering about their grandmother/mother's family. Her name was Elsie Gautz (nee Lenz), was born 28 Sep 1916 in Wisconsin and died 17 Jun 2005 in Toledo, Ohio.

My mother-in-law says that her parents were Emil and Ottilia (spelling?) Lenz. I found a possible Emil Lenz in the SSDI - born 18 Aug 1889, and died Oct 1964 in Wisconsin.
Elsie's obituary says that her parents were Leonard and Lydia Lenz. Something's not right.

Elsie's siblings were Olga, Maida, Ida, Emily, Rose, Leonard and Harold. Ida (now Fidlin) was alive in Florida as of last year.

Supposedly the parents came from Germany, with some of the oldest siblings.

This isn't much to go on. Anyone have any ideas?
