Weitz from Hesse Darmstadt to St. Louis, MO
I am researching the Weitz family in St. Louis. The 1850 Census shows Heinrich and Catharine in St. Louis and married within the year. They had at least 2 children, Louis abt. 1850 and Valentine abt. 1856.
Heinrich Weitz was born in Hesse Darmstadt.
Catharine was previously married to Henrich Knittel. She may have come here from Alsace Lorraine. Her marriage records to Heinrich Weitz list her as widowed.
I am interested in any/all St. Louis Weitz info.
