Forget Me Not

The MORITZ Family

The FOREMAN/FORMAN family connects with my GALUS family and is the paternal line of a couple of my first cousins. The MORITZ family connects with the FOREMAN/FORMANs.

In the 1890 online Nebraska State Gazetteer Farmer List for Platte County is the following listing:
