In Reply to: ZEITZ, VAN DEN WILTENBERG & MERCER by Daphne Zeitz of 206

Wish I'd found this page earlier! Ernest Robert and Michilina Zeitz were my father's maternal grandparents. His mother (my grandmother) was Margaret Kenyet Zeitz, the oldest of Robert and Michilina's children. Ernest (or Robert as we knew him) homesteaded near Conklin, MI. Margaret married Sterling Altman (date believed to be May 1892). They had 8 children; Fred C., born Mar. 14,1893; George Ray, born Oct. 30,1894 (died 1901 of Typhoid); Ethel Amelia, born Mar. 13,1896; Robert Carl,born Feb.15,1898; Leonard Everett, born May 20,1903; Clarence Edgar,(my father)born Apr. 16, 1909; Helen Margaret, born May 19, 1911; Sterling Edwin, born Aug. 21, 1915. Sterling Altman (born Sep. 18,1866 in Napolian, Ohio)was the son of George Milton Altman (born 1826 in Ross County Ohio). He served in Co. D of the Ohio 68th Infantry Regiment during the Civil War and was granted a homestead in Wexford county in 1877. Sterling, Margaret and George are all buried in Selma Twp. cemetary. George's wife Sarah is not there, having moved to California after his death.
