More Wisconsin Denziens
Posted by: Liz Maynard (ID *****9000) Date: November 29, 2003 at 19:11:26

There is another Wisconsin line of Denzin/Denzine/Denziens that settled in the Portage, Wisconsin area. I am a descendent of Leopold Denzien, born 1843, who came to Portage in 1871. His sister, Hanna, born 1848, married William Roeker, settled in Portage in the late 1860s. Leopold and Hanna were born in Alt Wuhrow, Dramburg, Germany, children of Ferdinand Denzien and Caroline Buchholz.

Leopold married Johanna Thurler in Portage in 1877. One source says they had 9 children but I can only find information on 6: Carl 1877-1879, Charles 1881-19??, Alma (married John Berry) 1883-19??, Frederick 1884-1965, Henry 1888-1952 (my grandfather), Dorothy (married Edward Parkin) 1896-1974.

I do have more details that I would be willing to share and would be interested in hearing from anyone with more information on this line of Wisconsin Denziens.
