Bij het zoeken in de archieven
en op Internet naar de familienaam van mijn moeders kant “Keijts (ook wel Keyts,
Keits, Kijts)” kom ik regelmatig de naam “Keitz” tegen.
Alhoewel nog geen koppeling is gevonden tussen deze families heb ik alle gevonden info bewaard en hierbij een deel gepubliceerd.
Het is echter nog maar een deel van mijn informatie en ook heb ik informatie uit Amerika welke op verzoek niet op internet geplaatst kan worden.
Als u prijs steld op deze informatie, aanvullingen heeft of hier iets van wilt gebruiken laat u mij dit dan a.u.b. even weten.
As I searched the archiefs I found also a lot of information
for the Keitz family and I collected it also.
Uptil now I dit not find any connection between the Keits and Keitz family but I ceep looking and I kept all the information found an have put it on these pages.
It is only a part of my information and there is also information from Keitz people in the USA which, on request, may not be placed on the Internet.
If you are interested in the name Keitz, if you have any information, if you want to know more or if you want to use any of this information please let me know.

Letters for lookup's:
I know that our great great grandfather came to the United States from Fulda, Germany around 1850 and first settled in the Covington, KY area. They did not stay there long before moving to Cincinnati, OH across the river. He opened a store on a street corner where the new sports area stand now. He and his wife had two sons we know of, Henry Bernard Keitz and Joseph Keitz. Some time in the late 1850's they moved to St. Louis, Mo. On the way, the wife and mother contracted and died of colera( we do not have a maiden name for her). According to our great grandfather, our name was von Keitz before coming to the United States which checks out with information found in Fulda. When the Civil War broke out, our great great grandfather placed both children with a friend or possible relative of their mother's named Speakeman. They never saw their father again. Not sure if he died in the Civil War, or just never came back for the children. Do not know what became of Joseph, but there are a few other Keitz's around the U.S. My great grandfather was Henry Bernard Keitz. He married Rose Schulte and they had six children. There names were Harry, Emma, Etta, Albert, Raymond, and Adeline. Do not know of any connection to Keits. I have found some variant spellings of our name in Germany, such as Keuts, Keutsch, Keutz, Keitsch. I have never seen Keits, but that does not mean that it could have been changed when entering the U.S., or some other country. There is a von Keitz castle outside of Fulda, in the town of Mus. I have been there to see it. I would call it more like a very large 3 story farmhouse that was built in an agrarian part of the country. If you have any further questions, feel free to contact me, or if you come across any information connected to what I have provided you I would appreciate you forwarding it to me. May God bless you in your search, Craig R. Keitz
So sorry it has taken me so long to answer your letter, been busy with
company. They come here for the winter to visit to get away from the
snow as we winter in southern FL. They keep us very busy with their
The files you seen was before I discovered his first name was Harry but
Uncle Bobby didn't know if it was Frank, Francis or Harry as he was
called Frank. So I listed it with both names.
My husband's grandfather was Frank married to Mary Elizabeth Puthoff(
but listed in the census as Maria)Her nickname was Mamie. Her mother
was also Mary Elizabeth who was married to Frank Puthoff.
I don't have a ged com on the Keitz family as this is all I know. Your
Elmer John could have been a brother to our Frank Keitz. The area they
lived was Cincinnati but noone in the family seems to know anything so I
am left so to speak in the dark. Uncle Bobby can't remember any of his
fathers brothers or sisters.
I just keep looking to find some information, took me a long time to
find our Frank. Who was very interested in boxing, did any of your
family have a connection or get into boxing?
Please keep in contact and I will try to get back with you much better.
Take care, Yvonne
