CA Death Index on Rootsweb.com lists a Minnie Fritz b. 06/21/1870 IL d. 09/08/0958 San Diego, CA. Mother: ? Father: Huffman. I'm really grasping at straws here, but I am looking for a Minnie Kauffman (she or one of her 2 sisters married a FRITZ) daughter of Catherine Elizabeth Katzung & August Kauffman of Rockford, Winnebago Co., IL.
In my family tree I have an estimated birth date for Minnie Kauffman as 1869-1870. Her grandparents in IL were Casper Kauffman & ? and Joseph Katzung and Margarethe Hoffman. Don't know if this is the right person in the Death Index. Sex is right, birth year is right, place of birth is right, she was possibly living in San Diego when her brother, Charles Kauffman died there in 1945, problem with the death index for her is that no mother is listed and father is listed as Huffman instead of Kauffman. Maybe I'm stretching things here (OK, I am), but I'm hoping this is the right person, between Kauffman parents and a Hoffman grandparent, I'm hoping someone submitted the wrong info and gave fathers name as Huffman. Does anyone out there know? Don't know if the Kauffman girl married Mr. Fritz in IL, CA, or? Don't have marriage or death dates for them. Don't know Mr. Fritz's first name. Don't know if they had children. This Kauffman line has Katzung roots that I'd love to share info with them on, but I have not yet been able to find any of the Katzung / Kauffman descendents. Thanks!
