I am looking for information on the family of John and Hannah KUNTZ. John was b.1844-45 in Schwarch, Austria and married abt.1871 to a woman named Hannah. They had 6 children, I have names for 3 of them:
Mary A. KUNTZ b.1873-1874
Dora A. KUNTZ b. 1876-1877
Olive (Alice?) KUNTZ b. 1887-1888
John and Hannah last show in the 1910 census in the 1st Ward of Sioux City with their daughter Olive.
John was the brother to my g.g.grandmother, Josephine and they emigrated to the US in 1866. I would like to make contact with someone who has information on this family. I would be happy to share and swap information.
Thank-you for any help you are able to offer!
I hear ethereal whispers, persuasive,
soft and still,"Daughter, if you don't
remember us, who will ?"
Those of you who are working on your lines back to your 1600s American
Ancestors will find the1600s Ancestors Data Base to be of great help.
My recent posting updates to the Data Base has taken it to over 26,500
Ancestors who have descendants living today.
I have also added several National Societies who have proven many
of these Ancestors. Also at this time a few new respected Reference
works that contain thousands of sources including some of the early
colonists who have Royal Blood lines.
All the entries are coded to indicate to which reference work or which
National Society has at least one of their proven lines. Several of the
National Societies have over 20 different lines from a single Ancestor.
When you enter the 1600s Ancestor Data Base be sure to look at the top
of each data page for the link that takes you to the "Data Base Information
Here you will find the codes and references listed and how to use them. This
is must reading to understand the Data Base.
We are constantly updating the Data Base with additional Ancestors added
as time permits.
You will find the 1600s Ancestor Data Base at:
Everyone has FREE access to all our web site and the reports contained there.
Enjoy and Happy Hunting

Any help on this would be appreciated. I now have updated information on a
tank wagon rollover in late Jan 1920. Probably the last week in Jan.
Lewis (Louis) Williamson drove a delivery oil wagon and was a salesman for an
Independent oil company out of Sioux City, IA.
The wagon overturned, crushing him. The accident occurred near Climbing Hill,
IA. The relative, who related this story to me, worked from 1937-1940 as an
assistant postmaster in Hornick, IA.
The then postmaster in Hornick, Lester Harrison (J.L.H.), lived in that area
all of his life and he remembered of that happening near his home.
