>An obituary I located for my 2nd great granduncle states Christian HOLTZ came to the US, landing in NYC on January 9, 1854 having left Hamburg, Germany on November 4, 1853. The obit reads, "Christian Holtz was born April 14, 1823 in Hamburg, Germany. He left Hamburg, November 4, 1853, and came to America, landing in New York City Jan. 9, 1854. He came to Wood County shortly after that time and resided here until his death. His wife, Hannah Holtz, died Aug. 2, 1897. The deceased is survived by two brothers, Joseph Holtz of Red Cloud, Nebraska and John Holtz of New England, this county."
> German parish records I have obtained show Christoph Gottlieb Johann HOLST having been born on that date in Warnkenhagen, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany. Other records I have show that Christoph took the name "Christian" after coming to the United States. Christian was married at the time he came to the US, having married Hannah/Johanna Stetro (dob June 19, 1819 dod Aug 2, 1897).
