Hi Sue Ellen, Thanks so much for you reply - I am really pleased to correspond with someone about this, as I have been frustrated not to learn more about Anna Koglin so far, but to see so much on the net about the Koglins of the Port Hope area.Right, they are close!
I have made a couple of visits to the Port Huron Public Lib, where I found the marriage records of the three...I have cc's-if you want them, please let me know.They appear related, as witnesses to Clara's (or Matilda's- don't have recs at hand)wedding were Anna and her husband Emil Rietze.Re censuses of Michigan, I have looked at 1860 census data for St. Clair County and 1870 index on the net and have not located any of the three.I know that Anna Koglin changed to here married name in 1873, but that Emil died shortly after around 1877; she went by the Rietze name till 1882, when she married Jacob Denler, my great grandfather.Re certificate, no I don't have it and actually have never gotten one!Where would I obtain it--State of Michigan?She died in Portland Oregon in 1912 and was returned and buried in Port Huron.
I have found through US SSDI other Koglins in Port Huron currently in the Port Huron area - Gregory Allen Koglin (b. 6/28/1962 in Port Huron), son Derrick Allen Koglin (b. 7/27/1993 in Port Huron); Stephen David Koglin (b. 1/10/1964 in Port Huron, whose father was Junior Koglin), etc.!However, unless there was a brother with Anna/Clara/Matilda, these folks must descend from elsewhere...Port Hope?
I also have two death records for a Fredericka Koglin (1) from the Smith Funeral Home at age 89 showing burial in Port Hope on 1/27/1938; and (2) from Rootsweb.com Death Records showing place of death as St. Clair County--did she die in Port Huron and get buried in Port Hope?Also, her first name intrigues me, as my great grandmother was Anna F.D. Koglin (don't know if F stood for Fredericke; however, the birth years would not match (former 1849; later 1846).Fredericka Anna is also the first/middle name of the woman in the Brandenburg Prussia emigration record, who is shown as married to Friedrich Wilhelm Rietze, both traveling from Schoenwalde/Luckau in 1875.Here the husband and emigration dates do not match "my" Anna Koglin (as per above).Perhaps they match your relatives!DO you have a record of her and know if her middle name is Anna?
This is no doubt much more than you want to know - sorry!!!Any reactions very welcome.Regards, Jim
