In the 1980's my father found a cousin, Kurt Rettig, in Germany. When they spoke on the phone, Kurt said that his grandmother (perhaps) had always wondered what happened to Mary Marxsen Black and her children. Mary is the daughter of Peter Henry Marxsen and Mary Vetter. My dad and Kurt corresponded and Kurt gave my father a lot of information and some photos. Those photos are in storage now as I am in the process of moving, but I have a photocopy I can find of Katherine Vetter Rettig b 20 July 1820; George Vetter b 17 Nov 1826; Michael Vetter b 1877 and Margaret Rettig Vetter b 1831. I am willing to share information.
