I have been doing some research for a friend of mine regarding the Pletz family name, her mom's maiden name She is looking for info on her mother, maiden name Dorothy Jane Pletz who passed away in 1982 and there is no record of her birth.
Her father died and she went to live with an aunt, Lydia, at some point of time. All of this is in the Chicago and Springfield area.
Can't find her with Lydia and that may have been after 1930 and the census doesn't go that far.
But I did find a Dorothy Petz living with a Caroline Hochendorfer, a widow who had a bunch of children including a Kathryn.
Also living with her are 2 grandchildren, Raymond and Dorothy Petz and that may be her mother.
What I can tell you is maybe this is the connection we are both looking for.
Dorothy Petz married a few times but last time married a Bud Gerow and moved to Canada in '66 I think. She had a daughter Jan with her first husband, first name Frank. She was a nurse.
There was an Arlene Pletz, Dorothy's sister, who married a Shanahan. Arlene had a daughter named Kitty who may be the Kathryn referred to in this post. Kitty had brother and sister Patricia and David. Matthew was the father's name. Arlene passed away in chicago and Matthew is in a nursing home. (by the way, This post says the PLATZ family forum but it is PLETZ).
There is more but if this is the connection you are looking for please contact me via email.
