I have been trying to locate information on my father's family. The very scanty info I have is that he was born in Berlin, Brandenburg in 1877. His parents were Oscar or Heinrich Otto and Adelina Theresa Vass or Voss. He travelled extensively and I have been able to locate info that he lived and married in England. Is there any connection with John?

Jeff - My g-grandfather was Julias Moza. Julias's death certificate list his parents as John Moza and Mary BOIKE. The informant on his death certificate is Mrs. Otto WITTSTOCK. I believe her first name was Agnes and that she is a sister to Julias.

Julias and his wife Agnes Granke, had 14 children...Clara, Ed, Agnes (my grandmother), Theresa, John, Joe, Julius, Rose, Celie, George, Marge, Harry, Irene and Dorothy (Dorothy just passed away at 83 yrs. this past Friday and was buried today.)

My grandaunt, Clara Moza LISKE lived at 8233 Nuernberg, Holy Name Catholic Church was on the corner. Nuernberg is just south of McNichols off of Van Dyke Avenue.

According to my mother's wedding invitation list (can you believe she kept it! It's over 50 years old) - Mrs. Agnes Wittstock & family lived at 8123 Nuernberg. John had a brother named Norbert . I also have a Ed Wittstock & family.

Perhaps your fathers aunts Agnes & Clara Boike were really Agnes & Clara Moza.

I know for a fact that Rev. John Wittstock was a cousin to my grandmother's family. There appears to be a connection to you...let's figure out how.

Agnes & Clara were never married. Their father was Anton Boike born 12 July 1861 in Bresin, West Prussia mother was Maria(mary) Kolleck born Sept 1868 in Putzig, West Prussia. do you have any information on your Mary Boike?

Jeff - I don't have any info on Mary Boike, I've just started researching this line. However, I believe there is a connection somehow through her. Agnes Moza Wittstock would have been her daughter. Your Agnes and Clara Boike were probably cousins to her. I noticed on your family tree, that one of your Boike's was married at St. Albertus. That was the same church my grandmother was baptized in.

Notice the names, there are a lot of Agnes and Clara's here which was typical of the time's to name children after other relatives.

I live in the Detroit area, what about you?

I live in St. Clair Shores. Anton boike did have a sister her name was maria(mary) Johanna Boike born 1859. maybe Julias Moza married mary.
