Re: Ontl Family Memphis
I just on a whim typed in "Ontl" into a search engine to see what would come up and found your message.
Concerning your message, there are a couple Ontl's in central WI (although originally we lived outside Chicago) my dad is Allan Ontl, my grandfather was Charles (who lived in Chicago) and my great-grandfather was Karol Ontl, who came over to the States in the 1910's and settled in E. St. Louis, Il.
My dad has told me a story about another Ontl from TN who once called to ask my grandfather to ask if their were any male children to keep the name alive.I wonder if this might have been a relative of yours?
One other Ontl I know of in WI is a Frank Ontl who lives in Williams Bay, WI.My dad said that Karol Ontl had a half brother who came over in 1910's and believes that Frank Ontl is related to our family that way
