Wilhelm Friedrich "William" Klotz
Birth: Apr. 17, 1859, Germany
Death: May 27, 1933
Detroit
Wayne County
Michigan, USA

Wilhelm Klotz (who died at age 74 years, 1 month, and 10 days) often went by the nickname of William. His wife, Maria Anna (Krauser) Klotz, preferred the nickname of Mary. Mary was the informant on his death certificate. She listed his birth, if she is correct, as being in Corlene Germany. Mary lived on to the age of ninety-nine after Williams death. She never remarried. She fell and broke her hip at that age, and died while convelescing from that operation. One of their daughters, Gertrude (Klotz) Krueger, lived to be age ninety-Seven.

Wilhelm's parents (Caroline (Drews) Klotz and Carl Klotz)and Wilhelm's brothers and sisters lived in Chicago Illinois. I have family letters and photographs from some of them sent to William and Mary (who lived in Detroit Michigan) in my posession.
