I am searching a Kratz line that arrived from Germany in the early 1850s, settling in Lorain Co OH. Shortly after 1870, they moved to Berrien Co MI. Family members include John and Mary, with children Christian, Henry (all four born in Germany), Elizabeth, Catherine, Dora and A... (daughters born in OH). Henry married Catherine Barbara Knott (Knadt?) in Berrien Co MI and they had six children, Dora, Fred, Louise, Ida (died as an infant), Lillian, Elizabeth and Anna (all born in Berrien Co). Christian married Carolyn Bernhart and a daughter Catherine was born in MI, but I have found no other information for them after 1875. Some of them appear on the 1900 census for St. Joseph Co IN. Fred (my grandfather) and the others settled in St. Joseph Co IN. As of yet, I do not know what became of John and Mary (Casper). Any information for this family much appreciated. THANK YOU.
