    Notes 
    • Ignatz Kautza came to America on the ship "UNION' which sailed from the Port of Bremen to New York and arrived 21 August 1856, which was Ignatz's 50th birthday. His occupation was listed as blacksmith, and the country from which they were traveling was listed as Germany and the city was listed as ALTSTADT in the Province of Anhalt, and their destination was listed as Wisconsin. Traveling with them were his wife Catharina, age 50 years; Johann age 24 years, and his occupation was listed as blacksmith; Johanna age 21 years, and her occupation was listed as servant; Mathias age 18 years and his occupation was listed as cartwright; Franz age 15 years and his occupation was listed as blacksmith; Anton age 7 years; and Martin age 6 years. ( This information was located in the book "Germans to America" Volume 10, Edited by Ira A. Glazier and P. William Filby.)

      The family settled in the Milwaukee area between 3rd and 4th street. Ignatz filed his 'Intent for Citizenship' in Milwaukee, and the original paper is on file at the Milwaukee County Historical Society. The paper was filed on 3 November 1857. It confirms that he emigrated to the United States, and landed at the Port of New York in the month of August 1856.

      About six years later, they moved to the St. Nazianz area to farm. They settled west of St. Nazianz, near a saw mill which was called "Slab City". (Valders, is the name of the town that was originally called, "Slab City".)

      The earliest land transaction that was found so far was on December 15, 1865. He bought 80 acres for 550.00

      Bought 40 acres of land on 6 December 1866 from Peter Weiser for $140.00 which was located in County of Manitowoc. Land located at South East quarter of the South East quarter of Section 21 of Township 18 Range 21. Later also owned 80 acres land located at North West quarter of the North West quarter of Section 27 of Township 18 Range 21.

      It just could be that some of this land was bought for some of the other sons who were still living in Milwaukee, and who did move to St. Nazianz, a little later on.
