Educated in his native land, he came to America in 1869, a young man of 25 years, and for about a year resided in Wisconsin. It was in 1870 that he arrived in Plainview Township ... He and his family are affiliated with the German Lutheran church. Mr. Goetz was married October 3, 1871, to Rose Wandray, who died January 1, 1918. They were the parents of twelve children: Adeline, now Mrs. John Eggare of Plainview; Fred, residing in Plainview Township; Emma, wife of Henry Boice of Elgin Township; Laura, now deceased, who was the wife of John Hadley of Plainview; Otillia, now Mrs. William Boehlke of Plainview; Albert, residing in Plainview Township; August, Jr., of Plainview Township; Elsie, wife of Henry Beneke, of South Dakota; Edward, of Plainview Township; Ernest, a shoe merchant in Plainview; Arthur, of Plainview Township; and Elna, now Mrs. Henry Knocke, of South Dakota.
