This Elias KATZ was actually Charles Elias KATZ born in New Your City, New York in October 1855 son of Elias KATZ and wife Julia (maiden name unknown).
Charles Elias KATZ and his father Elias KATZ both listed their occupation as 'Butcher' in the 1880 census of New York City.

He married first Sarah (maiden name unknown) about 1880 in New York City.Sarah born March 1856 New York City. Three children were born to this union: 1. Elias C. KATZ born June 1882 New York City, N.Y. 2. Amy S KATZ born December 1886 New York City, N.Y. 3. Carl KATZ born May 1892 in California Would like to contact descendants of these children.
Charles Elias KATZ evidently divorced his wife Sarah of twenty years so he could marry a second time to Maude Annette POSTON about 1904 in the Twin City area.Maude was 23 years his junior.Maude was just 5 years older than his eldest son.There was no doubt some major controversy and disruption of family ties.Probably denial and refusal to acknowledge the other part of the family was the stuff that made this family most difficultto trace.
This second union produced only one child: 4. Rivka Adna KATZ born 24 October 1905 in Minneapolis.
Rivka married first to William Pruyn SCHAPPACHER and second to Clifford E. PRATT.
