Lorentz Family Genealogy Forum
I'm looking for information on my great grandmother, Minnie Ora Lorentz. She was married to William Hart Edmonson, somewhere in Texas, probably sometime between 1890-1905. I know my grandmother was born in Burkburnett, TX in 1918. The family moved up to the Walters area, Cotton Co, OK at least in time for my grandmother to attend high school there (if not earlier).
According to my aunt who talked with a cousin of hers who was doing research on this line, the Lorentz' came from Germany in 1820 to Hagerstown, Maryland. However, my father said that Minnie's father was known as "Little Frenchie". The family might be from the Alsace-Lorraine.
