Hi, my name is Jeanne Bennitt.My maiden name use to be Maerz.I was the person who started the Gem form for the Maerz.I haven't been able to find any information on the Maerz & I'm looking for anything that will help me find out about my Dad's background.Louis Maerz, is my grandfather's father, so he would be my greatgrandfather.All I know is that, he came from Germany & was born in 1855.His son ( my grandfather, was named Edward Henry Theordore Maerz.He was born & lived in Springfield Township in La Porte, Indiana.He was born on August 29th, 1886 & he died on April 20th, 1974, in Michigan City Hospital, Michigan City, Indiana.He was 88 years old when he passed away.He married my grandmother, who's name was Gladys Irene Barnes.She was born in July 18th, 1899 & she died on July 29th, 1985.Ahe also died in Michigan City, Indiana. If you can help me at all, please do so. Also, can you write me & tell me what the family tree page said in the hand writing?I could figure out some of it, but not all of it. I would like to know what it said. I'm glad that there's someone else out there that has something on the Maerz family tree.
