I am interested in your Gretzingers.Henry Beemer and Anna Susanna Worm of Shelby County, Ohio had a daughter named Adeline, born in Germany aft 1837.They came to America before 1841 where their next son was born.Their last child was Joseph Godfried Beemer, who married Magdalena Stengel...these were my great grandparents.Their son Margaret Salome Beemer, married to Louis William Bertsch were my grandparents.I remember my grandmother talking about Aunt Adeline Gretzinger and her Gretzinger cousins.One of the cousins was named Leah and married a Mr. Brannon.The other was Louisa.I also know that a Gretzinger married a Schue and lived in Sidney, Ohio and I know that we are somehow related to them.
I am specualting on Adeline being the same Adeline Beemer that married a Gretzinger.The reason I came to this conclusion was that I know my grandmother had an Aunt Adeline Gretzinger..have pics of her....and because of hearing my grandmother speak of her.I have all her other aunts and uncles spouses' accounted for..so she is the only one left.I have not yet found marriage records.For some reason I have Adeline's husbands name as John.I think because I have a picture of a John Gretzinger in my grandmothers picture album.This could be Adeline's son instead of spouse, I suppose, but I do not remember grandma ever talking about a son.Only the two girls.
I was curious to know what you have on the Gretzingers?Hope to hear from you.
