Sontag Family Genealogy Forum
Hi Sherri, This marriage between Justus Sontag & Anna Catherine Hoiss is a first marriage for Justus and a second marriage for Anna Catherine, Anna Catherine Metz was married to a Hoiss before her marriage to Justus, she had a daughter by the name of Susannah when she married Justus. I haven't dug real deep into August "Justus" and Anna Catherine very deep, since they never had children of their own together, at least that is what I have gathered from the census records, I have this family on the 1860, 1870 & 1880 census, 1890 veterans schedule, the St. Louis Directory for 1899-1900, 1900 census, and 1910 census for Justus, Anna Catherine died in 1903. I have no death date for this Justus, I do know it is after Nov. 4, 1910 when he filed an affidavit on behalf of Hampton Griffith, I have never been able to locate Justus on the 1920 census so I have assumed he has passed on at that point.
I have been told that he is buried in Gumbo, but I have not been able to prove that. Clara
