Re: Minnie Koltz - Dutchess County & Kingston, NY
I think this must be your Minnie...
Wilhelmine or Minnie Koltz was the oldest child of Johann Friedrich Theodor Kolz and his wife Dorothea Pedersen.Minnie was born about 1854 in Denmark and immigrated to New York with her parents, aboard the Eutalia.They left Hamburg, Germany about May 1867 and arrived in New York City on 22 June 1867.(New York Passenger Lists, Film 281 list no. 626, where she is listed as "Kolz, Wilhe.", female age 9, from Denmark, destination New York.)
She appears with her family on the 1870 U.S. Census of Pleasant Valley, Dutchess, New York.(HeritageQuest series M593, roll 926, p. 444, dwelling 193, family 194, includes Minnie Koltz, age 16, white female, working in a cotton mill, born in Denmark).
Her father died sometime between 1874 and 1879, and her mother and family moved to Kingston, New York, where they appear (without Minnie) on the 1880 Census.Her mother died on 1 January 1881 in Kingston.
I have more information about her father's family if you are interested.
What else do you know about Minnie's life that you could share with me?I have no information about her after 1870.
