Below Juliana are her seven children, starting with two sons, Adolf (16) and Herman (11), followed by daughters Elise (9) and Anna (6),
then sons Richard (7), Earnest (3), and 6-month-old Otto.
From other record sources, I know that Juliana's maiden name was Juliana Elisabetha Haeberle and that the family was originally from Homburg, in the Bavarian section of Germany.
Otto, however, was born in the town of Kaiserslautern, which is about 35 kilometers (22 miles) east of Homburg. As we see here, Juliana and the children arrived in America 6 months after Otto's birth.
I have been unable to locate an immigration record for Otto's father, Christian Fretz. I can only assume that he arrived on an earlier or later date.
