I am researching the families of Wenzell, Reich, Pogreba, Czock and Klick from West Prussia, the Lonto/Lonctot/Lanctot family of Canada and France, the Thomas Everett family from England and the Wilson, Foster and Gale families from northeastern US.

Emil Max WENZELL came from Prussia in 1882 and settled in Ohio. He married Ann JANDA. They had 2 children Louise and Fredrick. At some point they moved and settled in Illinois.

The Joseph Michael REICH married to Mary Tracy POGREBA and John CZOCK married to Catrina KLICK families all came from the Opplen area of Prussia in 1882 and settled in Delano, Minnesota.

Adolph LONCTOT, aka Domina Lonctot was last seen in 1891 in Duluth Minnesota after being widowed by Annie LEBERGE and their remaining son Arthur was sent to the Owatonna State School. Adolph was heard from and located in NYC in 1900 remarried to Elizabeth.

Thomas EVERETT married Jane WRIGHT both from England. They had a son William Henry in 1856 in NJ. William went on to marry Ada Scott in MI. When Ada died in 1903 in Hubbard county of Minnesota, William disappeared.

James WILSON in 1832 in PA or IA. He married Cynthia SILLSBIE/SYSBI born in NY in 1837. James died in 1882 in Pelican Rapids, MN. Cynthia remarried to Charles HARMON and she passed in 1920 in Mora, MN.

Reuben FOSTER was born in Jefferson Cty, NY in 1808. He married Rebecca WALTON in Mercer, ME in 1831. Reuben died in Minneapolis, MN in 1888.

Charles GALE was born in OH in 1880. He married Grace NICHOLS. Their son John Devere married Myrtle SHROATS and lived in IL. I know very little on this family.
