Sontags from Germany to WI in 1850
Posted by: Jon Sonntag Date: January 01, 2001 at 20:18:28

I am trying to track the Gottlieb Sontag family (Frederick and Wilhelmine were his children) back to Germany. Gottlieb and his family settled in Two Rivers, WI in 1850 after coming over on the ship "Franklin". Frederick was born in 1845 and served in the Union Army in the Civil War. On the ships passenger list, Gottlieb is said to have come from Sternbach or Stienbach (it's hard to read). Any info would be appreciated.
