Looking for information on the Getzinger or Goetzinger line.G-Uncle Matt Getzinger lived on Goodyear or Fargo Rd off Seaman Rd in what used to be Toledo, OH.Now called Oregon, OH..He attended St Thomas Church on White Street in Toledo and left the Church a fund too.
I never knew of his wife and am trying to find information for him and family.
He raised chickens and had an egg route for many years before he died of cancer when I was a child.I don't remember what age I was.Had the meanest chickens I ever knew.When he passed away, we got the chickens and the route and collecting eggs.One needed to dress like going to a beehive to go inside with those chickens.
He was a wonderful man and though as a child I thought my cheek would never look right when I was older for the way he pinched me hello.
He was tall in stature and I don't even have a picture of him.Does anyone know of family that might?I found something once regarding a Getzinger, Matthew in an orpanage.Does this sound familiar in any way?
I believe he is the brother of my grandfather who passed away when my father was just a babe.Would love to find more family.
