Amy, I am researching Kenosha and Racine Counties for the parents of my ancestor, William Swantz who emigrated 6/30/1851 on ship Oder from Hamburg. He married Caroline (Minnie) Freitag, daughter of William Freitag and possibly Sohpia. Family history says that the wife of William Freitag died at William Swantz's home near Union Grove at the age of 77. I don't have the family connections but I believe they came from the same town. I have a wedding record of John Freitag, on Mar 18, 1881, from Grace Lutheran Church, Kenosha. I haveanother wedding of Charles Genz or Lenz to Bertha Freitag in the German Lutehran Church in the town of Parish on Feb 28, 1880. August Freitag was the father of the bride and Louisa Fleming the mother. August lived in Yorkville in 1880. The names match but the dates don't match yours. Hope this is of some help.
