Emma Spitzer Tue Oct 14 14:34:22 2008
I wonder if you might have heard of Johan SPITZER? The will says he is "late of Township of New Germantown." The name on the legal documents reads "Johan SPITZER." His wife was Juliana "Justina" (RUFF) SPITZER (the daughter of Justive FANDRICH and Jacob RUFF) (Justive was a related to Christian FANDRICH who lived nearby in ND).

Mr. SPITZER was born Oct 5 1853 in Russia possibly in Malin or Kiev. He lived in Nue Kassel of Bergdorf Russia. His family went to Roumania in 1873 when Mr. SPITZER was 20 years old. In 1876 he married his wife. He was 23 years old. His family lived in Karomar, Mamasler Roumania. His most recent place of residence prior to coming to America was Taurontino Romania. He came to America in May 1906 and filed claims NW of Anamoose (Declaration of Intent).

It says the "grim reaper claimed him on the farm" at this location and that he was buried in Lincoln, Germantown Baptist cemetery In Sheridan County ND . Mr. Reiswig checked the First German Baptist cemetery near his farm and Johan is not there.

He and his wife had 12 children. Three children pre-deceased him. I do not know their names. His remains were interned at the German Baptist Cemetery, Lincoln on Jan 5 1913. He died Jan. 3rd 1913 according to ND State records. He was 59 years, 2 months and 28 days old. He had stomach cancer for 6 months & died at home.

He had five sons: Johan Jr. (Christina POHL), Samuel (Christina DOCKTOR), Andreas "Andrew"(Johanna SCHUERER), Ferdinand "Fred" (M1 Christina DOCKTOR and M2 Paulina AICHELE), Jake (M1 Lena FANDRICH (died Nov. 1 1907) and M2 (Carolina GEHRING) and four daughters: Sophie died: 21 Aug 1917 (Jakob BERG), Elisabetha "Louisa" 'Lizzy" (Fred WEBER), (Ana Maria "Mary" (Fred MARTIN), & Julia (Gottlieb KRUEGER).

I have his Declaration of Intent, his border crossing registration, his land records, his death certificate, his obit, his will and still no one can find him.
Do you think you can find where he is buried?
