LOOKING FOR ANYONE RESEARCHING THIS FAMILY. I HAVE SOME OLD PHOTOGRAPHS.

Peter Kunz b.ca. 1824 Prussia and wife Anna Susanna (Laubach) Kunz b.ca. 1835 married 1 Dec 1852 Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Peter Kunz and wife Anna ran a saloon in early Milwaukee. Peter Kunz died by 1880 as Anna Kunz continues running the saloon as a 'widow'. Seven known children:
Fred Kunz b.ca. 1854 Milwaukee
John Kunz b.ca. 1856 Milwaukee
Peter Kunz Jr b.ca. 1859 Milwaukee
George Kunz b.ca. 1861 Milwaukee
Amalie/Anna F Kunz b.ca. 1866 Milwaukee
Jacob J Kunz b.30 Jan 1868 Milwaukee marries Bertha ZIEBELL
Charles R Kunz b. Apr 1872 Milwaukee

The 1889 City Directory of Milwaukee has the son Jacob J Kunz and his mother Anna Kunz running the saloon with her 'widow.' Living in household the daughter Anna and brother George Kunz all living at 601 Cedar St. Milwaukee. Jacob Kunz is working as a barber, his brother George Kunz listed as a trunk maker and sister Annie F Kunz working as a bookkeeper and mother Anna Kunz running the saloon.

The 1890 City Directory of Milwaukee has Jacob J Kunz still living at 601 Cedar St, Milwaukee--working as a barber with sister Anna F Kunz still a bookkeeper but youngest brother Charles R Kunz is now in household not employed, and brother George Kunz is still a trunkmaker. His mother Anna Kunz, saloon keeper is now living at 157 Huron St so seems to have moved out from household of her grown children.

SON Jacob J Kunz married 8 Oct 1890 in Milwaukee, Bertha M ZIEBELL born Oct 1866 Shivelbein, County of Schivelbein, pommerania, Prussia. Her husband Jacob Kunz was a master barber his entire life.

1910 census for Milwaukee has Jacob J Kunz still a barber and he and wife Bertha (Ziebell) Kunz have had these children:
Arthur Emil John Kunz age 18 born 30 July 1891 Milwaukee
Hilda Kunz age 15 born Oct 1894 Milwaukee
Also living in the household is Ella Ziebell (Bertha's older sister) and her mother Caroline Ziebell age 88 and one of Caroline's children John David Ziebell age 46 working as a coachman, and one of Jacob J Kunz's brothers John Kunz age 52, machinist. They are all living at 2711 GRAND AVE Milwaukee Wisconsin.

1920 census they are still at that address.
