I have tremendous amounts of information on four of my ancestrual pioneer families of Pottawatomie County. The first, the many children and grandchildren of Michael and Maria (Wendler) Zabel of Doelitz, Pyritz, Pommerania, Prussia, who came to America, particularly around Duluth and Onaga, Pottawatomie County, Kansas in the 1850's, 60's, and 70's. Common names would include Abitz, Brunkow, Matzke, Kolterman, Wegner, Kufahl, Teske, Schwandt, and others. The second family concerning the ancestors and descendents of Michael and Dorothea (Gutzmer) Tessendorf of Doelitz, Pyritz, Pommerania, Prussia, specifically their children: Michael of Onaga, Pottawatomie County, Kansas and Maria (Mrs. Charles Zabel) of Westmoreland, Pottawatomie County, Kansas. The third pioneer family was the Benjamin and Samantha (King) family, formerly of Preston County West Virginia, who emigrated to Lincoln Township, near Havensville, Pottawatomie County, Kansas. The final family was the Elliott family, formerly of Monaghan County, Ireland. Two siblings Mary Ann, who married James C. Taylor and William Henry Elliott, who married Lena Michael emigrated to near Onaga, Pottawatomie County, Kansas.
