I'm looking for information on the Bock/Boltz families from Davenport, Scott County, IA and Moline, Rock Island County in IL. I'm researching the Bock Family,

Henry Fred Bock, met Agnes Otto, I believe in NY, served in the Civil War and Wilhelminia m2. A. Boltz/m1. Agnes Otto.
They had Emma Francene, Rudolph Wayne, Lena, Female, Rhoda, Harry F., William E., Florence M., Roy (Mickey) L., Roland (Rolly/Rolie H. Bock.

They married into these names: Jacob Justin Brown, Ida Ellingsworth, Charles R. Boyd, George Guinn, Goldie Olson, Hazel Rose.

I have a female that I know nothing about, Harry died in an explosion on a ship in San Diego, CA during WWI., Florence never married she worked for a Lawyer in Davenport, IA and I don't think Rollie married either.

Henry had also been previously married and widowed to a Agnes Otto. He other children from that marriage also.

Their names were Charles, Sophie Agnes and Augusta Bertha Bock.

They married into these names: Emma, Julius Henry Wehrend/Weiren and Thomas Ward Thomson.

Does anyone recognize any of these names, any help would be greatly appreciated.
