Katharina Wetzel was born in Worms, Odessa, Russia, to William Wetzel and Catherina Trautmann; but she was reared by Jacob Vollmer whom her mother married.

Katharina married Jacob Kraft in Worms, Odessa, Russia, and after his death she accompanied her two sons, Edward Kraft (single) and Jacob Kraft, his wife, Anna Marie (Zimbelmann), and 2 grandchildren, Herman and Ed Kraft, to the USA. They were on the ship named "Dominion" and arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1913.

She had six children: Johann, Pauline, Jacob, Edward, Christina and Emma. Christina Kraft is the only child who stayed in Russia--the other 5 children came to the U.S.

She married J Kittler in North Dakota, March 14, 1916, in Hazen, Mercer, North Dakota.
