  of 82

In 1882 Gottlieb and Elizabeth Krumm Closs emigrated from Stuttgart Germany to Linwood, New Jersey. They did also live in Scranton Pa. it is believed. Elizabeth was previously married to a Prussion officer named Wivrim, or Wurhm, who died of appendicitis.
Their son Christian Ludwig Closs b. 1875 m. Lydia Ratzel.
He was a lumberman, builder, and sought a new fortune in New Jersey about 1910.

Looking for any information regarding this line.
Many Thanks, Eric Pickel
