Re: Arkansas branch of Gortemillers 1911
Yes, we have the same Gortemiller ancestors.Your George Gortemiller's father, Franz Henry Gortemiller, was a brother to my great grandmother, Mary Jane Gortemiller Keown.
This is your line as I have it:
1. Henry Gortemiller b. abt 1827, in Hanover, Germany.Died Nov 22, 1888.Henry married 1st on Aug 9, 1855, to Francis Hannah Grimmer b. abt 1840, in England and died in Cedar Co., MO.
2. Franz Henry Gortemiller b. abt 1856, and married on June 23, 1886, in El Dorado Springs, MO,to Cynthia Fry, who died June 18, 1927.
3. George Washington Gortemiller born Sept 29, 1888, in Stockton, MO.
Homer and Beulah (witnesses at his wedding) were George's brother and sister.
I look forward to exchanging information with you.
