  • Notes 
    • Katharine's death certificate (per Sandra Wunsh) lists parents as John Dittenbir and Barbara Johns (probably Barbara Johannes)

      Heinrich Andreas Reitz, Katharina Dittenbir and children appear on the Kukkus Reitz Surname Chart prepared by Dr, Igor Pleve. It would be assumed that the children were all born in Kukkus, however American records leave no doubt that all the children were born in the USA. Also Katherine Dittenbir lists her immigration to the USA in 1898. It would seem that the parents communicated with the church in Kukkus after immigrating and their childrens births were then entered into the Kukkus church records, where they were found many years later by Dr. Pleve.
