With a bit more research, I've determined the following:
My maternal great-grandparents:
Frederick (1838-1909) & Augusta (1858-1922) Tetzlaff
Their nine children:
Elisabeth – oldest of the children
Herman Gustav Edward – baptized 1898
Louise – married to Gustav Wurch 1898
Bertha Maria Elisabeth – confirmed 1899
Martha Maria – confirmed 1902
Wilhelm Fredrich – confirmed 1904
Elsa Lydia Lillie (a.k.a. Lillian) – baptized 1900, the youngest of the children and my maternal grandmother
(Still missing one name)
My great-grandparents moved to Fairwater Wisconsin before 1898 from Germany with seven to nine children. I originally thought all nine were born in Germany but now think the last two may have been born in the US. I was not able to track down their immigration records from the Ellis Island database on-line, so perhaps they came before 1892 (data of first electronic records) and took a few year to get to Wisconsin.
Any more details out there?
