Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 24, 1849, Germany
Death: Feb. 29, 1925
Oconto Falls
Oconto County
Wisconsin, USA

Eva is the daughter of Joannis (John) Weiland and Susannae (Schmelter) Weiland born on April 24, 1849 in Germany. She married August (Frantz) Konitzer in Germany circa 1865. They came to America from the Port to Bremen on the SS America and arrived in Baltimore, MD on April 4, 1884.

Names of six children were found including Mary, Andrew, Albert, Antone, Clara and Frantz (died young). The 1900 census listed August and Eva as having 18 children, five still living.

In Germany, before coming to America, the home of August Kontizer burned, which took the lives of at least three of their children which were a pair of twins and one other. According to the story passed down, Andrew and his brother Albert were in the house with the three smaller children who were sleeping. The rest of the family were working in the field. Andrew was standing by the chimney and suddenly said to Albert, "Let's go outside." Instead of unlatching the door, they jumped through the window. By the time the rest of the family noticed the fire, it was too late to save the smaller children. Evidently they had relatives in Cato, WI so decided to come to America.

Stories provided by Eva's granddaughter, Agnes Konitzer Bridger Bast in her book called Original Konitzer Family Tree Book.
