I am searching for information related to John P. Kartes b. 1837 Prussia found in the 1870 US federal Census Springfield, Dane County, Wisconsin. His 63 year old parents reside in the home with his family: Philip and Catherene. He emigrated from Prussia in 1847.
possible sister of John P. Kartes is Anna Catherina m. Petrus Wagner in Prussia and emigrated to the US about 1847-48 - to Springfield, Dane County, Wisconsin. About 1880 the family removed to Mitchell County, Iowa where both were deceased by 1899
I think Anna Catherina's maiden name may well have been Kartes; she may have been a sister or cousin of John P. Kartes in Dane WI.
