My father is Wiley Edward Koonz who was born in Iowa. He married Catherine Lee Tuggle Burghstrum. Any help on this family is appreciated. I have also found that the given name Edward runs in my family line alot. I am wanting to know all of the various spelling of Koonz. So far in my studies the names I have found that are connected to me is: Coon, Coonz, Koon, and Koonz. I have also found other various spellings here on Genforum. This is why I am asking for information on our surname. I am also asking the origin of our surname too.
