There is no proof that this KOHTZ family is related to our KOHTZ family.
But as my mother's maiden name is KOHTZ and her ancestors also come from the same greater area,
we did some research on several US-Kohtz families which we are willing to share.
Please contact me at the e-mail address at the end of this page.

Descendants of Martin KOHTZ and Pauline ADAMS

 Martin David ** KOHTZ
* 31 Dec 1831
Groβ Kämpe, Culm, West Prussia   + 29 Sep 1906 Hampton NE and his wife

Elisabeth Pauline ADAMS
* 18 Feb 1840 Zla Wies, Bromberg, Prussia  + 15 Nov 1896 Hampton NE

 

married 21 Nov 1861 in the Fordon Parish Church.

They arrived on the "Köln" (Cologne) from Bremen to New York on April 22, 1872

with their three surviving children Friedrich, Hermann and Hulda.

Seven more children were born in America.

Martin KOHTZ was a shoemaker in Germany and a farmer in Nebraska.

 

** The second name David was not found in any discovered document for Martin, but is reported by his descendants.

Only his tombstone says: D. M. Kohtz

Martin's original signature on his Declaration of Intent (Illinois, Henry County):

 

August 2006
Thanks to a hint of Harlan Kohtz (7.4.) and his grandson Christian Kohtz (7.4.1.1.)
and the intense research of my 3rd cousin Donald H. Ebbeler of Upland CA,
we came to know the names of Martin Kohtz’s and Pauline Adams’ parents and siblings (see at the end of this page).

March 2014
Thanks to the efforts of Roger Kohtz (3.7.1.) we also know the names of Martin Kohtz's grandparents (see at the end of this page):
Martin Kohtz  * 1759 Gross Kämpe and Maria Peitscher  * 1760 Niederstrelitz 

Thank you also for the wonderful family pictures, Roger!
