My husband's grandfather was William Witte. In his obituary one of his surviving brothers was Edmund of Riverton, NJ. William's parents were Charles and Fredericke Frank Witte who came to this county from Germany. They were married April 4, 1858 in Elmore, Ohio. Their children were

Clara, b. Jan,9 1859
Alfred, b.Oct. 17, 1861
Emma, b. Oct 26, 1863
William, b.Jan 4, 1866 (my husband's grandfather)
Ernst, b.Mar23 1870
Bertha, b. Feb 5,1873
Edmund, b.Mar 12, 1878
Franciska b. Sept 18, 1800

You can find them on the 1880 census ( Ottawa County, Harris Twp, Ohio) where the last name is spelled Wittey. Edmund is listed there as Edward. Hope this helps.
