BIXBY, DUNCAN posted by Kathy Stauffer on Monday, June 1, 1998

My Gr, Gr, Great Grandfather, Theron Kingsley BIXBY lived in Greenbay for a couple of years from 1856 to the early 1860's. He served Greenbay as superintendent of schools. He and his wife Sabrina (DUNCAN) had their first child there, he was John Ducan BIXBY, b:25 Feb. 1858. My question is does anyone know of any history books or school records that would mention superintendents of schools of the past? I would like to find some mention of him and if I am lucky, even a photo. A few years later (mid 1860's) he became a circuit rider minister in Iowa for the Congregational Church. Neither Theron nor Sabrina were from Wisconsin originally.

LENTZ, RADKE posted by Linda Busk on Tuesday, June 16, 1998

I am new to my search but have found a very important link in my search...I am trying to find the death notice of my great-great-great grandfather: John LENTZ. Here is what I know: * March 14,1900 He witnessed the marriage of his son: Charles Lentzin Ripon WI. * John was married to Elizabeth Lentz, nee RADKE. * Their son, Charles was born in Germany, therefore, I assume that John was born there too. I am guessing that John Lentz came from Germany within the time period of the book: 1840-1900. I don't know when he was born or when he died. Any information that you can tell me would help...I am currently trying to find out when and where he died...he is a key part of my geneology.


A recent project has me looking for the descendants of my Pomeranian ancestors who came to Morrison Township, Brown County, Wisconsin in 1867. My great-great-grandparents Ludwig SEEFELDT (1830-1901) and his wife Josephine STREGE (1836-1916) came from Neu Sarnow, Kreis Cammin, Pomerania. They had 12 children: Robert, Johanna, Paul, Bertha were born in Germany; Josephine, Wilhelm, Ludwig, August, Carl, an infant son, Caroline, and Martha were born in Morrison. I have information on most of their spouses, but lack much information that extends these lines to the present. Some names of in-laws and descendants are: SCHAUP, McCORMICK, STELTZ, REUTER, YOUNG, EHRMAN, RASMUSSEN, RUNZHEIMER, IRISH, and WILLARD. Ludwigıs older brother, August SEEFELDT (1822-1888) and his wife Wilhelmine THIMM (1820-1891), from Rissnow, also came to the United States at the same time on the ship Franklin and also settled in Morrison Township, Brown County, Wisconsin. Their 7 children are: Johanne, Wilhelm, Justine, Carl August, Johann, Louise, and Albertine. Some names of in-laws and descendants are: RIESS, SCHWARTZ, BUERGER, NEUMAN, MacMILLAN, DOBERSTEIN, and SULLIVAN. I would be pleased to exchange information that would help extend the records for Seefeldt searchers. Ido have considerable information on the descendants of four SEEFELDT-FALCK marriages.
