* Gregory - Bitzer - Stoll - Simon Families Home Page*

Updated September 6, 2000

Gregory and Bitzer are my parent's last names. They have been in Michigan for three generation. My grandmothers names were Stoll and Simon. I have some parts back to the 1600 in Germany. Stoll and BItzer are back to about the time of the Turkish War when people first started taking last names. For Gregory, the family came from northern Cornwall England in the later 1850s. Some of the family still lives in Canada where my grandfather was born. The Simons are from Kusel, by Ulmet in Germany. They were stone masons in a quarry between the two towns which are in the hills. They came to Bay City MI in the 1800s. The Stoll family is from Kries Furth, Praessen, Germany. Ottweiller is the closest mailing address. Along with the Armbruster family they have prospered in the thumb area of Michigan since the 1860s. The BItzer and Maute families are still well represented in Tailfingen Germany which is south of Stutgart. Before World War II, I was related to more that 40% of the town which is near the Swiss border. Because of the number of generations and large number of related people, I hope this summary will suffice.
