Re: Wisconsin Tetzlaffs

In Reply to: Wisconsin Tetzlaffs by Sharon Waller of 141

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?
