I believe Justine and Christine may be same person except for the maiden name Brown. John Trotz filed for divorced from Justiana Christiana Trotz (no maiden name)Jefferson co WI 2 Nov 1897 for cruel and inhuman treatment. He stated married 25 years. Married 6 Jan 1872 in Sommeray Prov West Prussia. Had 9 children at time of divorce: Emil 24 Jackson county WI, Julius 21 Jefferson co, Emma 20 Fort Atkinson, Adolph 18 Jackson co, and Martha 16, Rudolph 13, Lydia 11, William at home with mother.Divorce granted 25 Jan 1898. A funeral record for Ida Wilhelmine Antoine lists father Johan Trotz and mother Ernestine Christine nee Knopf. Baptism record for Lydia Trotz born 1 Oct 1886 lists father Johann Trotz and mother Christine Knopf. Funeral record for Justine Marie Trotz-divorced wife of John Trotz whose maiden name was Knopf born at Elbing Prussia 7 June 1850 died 6 Jan 1934 Jefferson co WI. Was Christine Brown a second wife instead of first?
