My grandmother was Sophia Gratz.

Her parents were Lewis Gratz, b. 2/27/1862 at Waldwick, WI, died: 1/22/1934.He married Mary Degner on 7/6/1892.
The parents of Lewis Gratz were Eustice Gratz and Sophie Cowfman (I'm sure this must be Kauffmann, Kaufmann, or Kauffman).Both were born in Germany, but I have no more information.
Mary Degner was born in Shelligen Thall, Germany on 4/10, 1873, and her parents were George Degner and Margaret (?).
Any information on the Gratz or Degner families from Germany in Wisconsin would be appreciated.
