My maternal grandmother was Theresa Catherine Blattner, born on July 10, 1874 - probably in Petoskey, Michigan. She was one of 7 children of Andrew Blattner and Louise Seegert, both of whom it seems, were born in Switzerland (Kuttigen, Aarau or Rapperswil) and then moved to Petoskey, Michigan where they livbed at 825 Michigan Street (circa 1900, 1904).
Grandma's sisters were Elizabeth, Ann and Dorothea (known as Dora) and her brothers were Jospeh, Henry and William Blattner.
I DO know that one Gottlieb Blattner (perhaps a cousin of my Grandma's) is in the family: He was born in Erlinsbach, Switzerland, on May 10, 1864, son of Rudolf Blattner and Elizabeth Kyburz Blattner. He had 5 brothers: Jakob 1870, Karl 1872, Hans 1874, Samuel 1876 and Gottfried 1876(?.
Gottlieb's first wife was Emma Bolliger (born Oct, 23, 1865 in Schlossrued) and his second wife was Rosa Bolliger (born June 3, 1863 in Kuttigen, daughter of Andreas Bolliger and Anna Maria Blattner.
Does this help anyone? Anyone out there with the same lineage? Many thanks.
