My maternal 3great granmother, Dorothea Batz, was born 16 Oct 1823 in Bavaria. She emigrated to the USA in the 1840's with her parents, Konrad and Sarah Grundling. The family made their home in Baltimore, MD. Dorothea married John NECK, born Bavaria 5 Jan 1819, in St James RC Church in Baltimore. She died 15 Jul 1915 in Emmitsburg, Frederick County, MD.
I would greatly appreciate hearing from anyone who may have information to share on this family.
