H.B. Kurtz & Sons, Carey, Ohio
I am looking for information on my Kurtz ancestors. My grandfather's grandfather was Henry Bard Kurtz [H.B. Kurtz]. He owned and operated a Dry Goods Store in Carey Ohio at the end of the 19th century.
His father was David Kurtz who was married to Margaret Bard. Henry had 3 siblings, Elizabeth, B.F. and David, Jr.
Henry[9/28/1827-2/7/1897] married Sarah Rickenbach[4/19/1832-10/12/1913]. They had 6 children, Emma, David, Edgar, Metta, Ida and Willis Rickenbach Kurtz[my Great grandfather].
Willis[4/10/1863-12/3/1925] married Hallie Gertrude Houk[9/16/1868-7/10/1942]. They had 4 children, Dean, Russell[my grandfather], Gail and Donald.
I would like to find out if anyone has information about David or anyone before him and/or if anyone might have heard about the Kurtz Dry Goods Store in Carey.
