My grandmother was Elizabeth Amelia KUHL. My ggrandmother was named Emilie HOLTZKE according to my grandmother's marriage, death, documents, etc. Amelia Elizabeth(HOLTZKE) KUHL was her mother and Lewis KUHL was father. She could have had the formal name of Amelia Elizabeth HOLTZKE but called Emilie.I have found it both ways in other research.
Supposedly Lewis Kuhl died when my grandmother was an infant and my ggrandmother married Hugo STUMPE in 1888 and they raised her as their own.
I am interested in contacting anyone with the HOLTZKE name.I have wonderful photos going back many generations, in both USA and Germany.
I believe the name was changed or shortened to HOLTZ in USA by some members of family.
