My mother's grandfather was John Henry Wittig, son of Conrad Wittig and Catherine Schroeder.He was born in 1839. He married Sarah Elder and had three children, John Henry, Jr, Nettie and Annie.He died prior to 1880 because the census that year shows only Sarah and the children.
His son John Henry Jr. married Ida Lucinda FULLER GARRELL in Jan 1888.They had two children Helen Ida Wittig (my mother) and J. Ralph Wittig, who had no children.
I'm looking for ancestors and descendants of Conrad.He is supposed to have immigrated from Germany but I have no dates or location where he may have previously lived.
Would appreciate any and all help.
