Johann Kwart married Eva Boyke when they lived in Germany.   She died at 41 year old, and surviving her were 4 daughters and her husband.  Johann then married Rosalie Bolda and they had 5 sons and a daughter who died young.  The blended family immigrated in 1876 to America arriving in New York and traveling to Detroit.  Johann & Eva’s daughter Catherine married Anton Hallman who’s wife had died leaving him with 3 children.  (I intend to add more information here with documents, etc.)

One Response to “Kwart”

  • Andy Kwart:

    My great grandparents are Joseph Kwart and Frances Kozniacki, and my great great grandparents are John Kwart and Rosalie Bolde from Germany. That is as far back as I could trace my family tree. I was surprised to find their names on your website. Would you happen to know the names of their parents or other ancestors? Some of our family records have the name Quart instead of Kwart. We have not been able to figure out if it was a misprint on the documents or if the family name really was spelled like that at some point in time. Any info you have would be appreciated. Thanks.
