Delighted to hear from you. I can only tell you my grandfather Baltes Wiertz was born in Cologne on 11/14/1861. He came to America at age 16 and became a farmer in Rutland Illinois. I understand he was a wheel maker in Germany. He had two brothers, both born in Germany bfore coming to America. There names were Adolph, born 12/29/1844, and John, born 10/15/1885. I thank you for the contact. I hope we can help each other in our search.
