Catherina Motzko

(Note: the 2 additional people in the photo above are Catherine's sister and brother)

Catherina (aka Kate and Catherine) Motzko (b. 4-23-1879; d. 1-5-1945; buried Mt. Calvary Cemetery, Nampa ID) was the eldest daughter of Philipp and Maria Motzko. She was born in Groschovitz, Prussia. She traveled with her parents from Breman Germany to Baltimore Maryland in 1881 on the ship Leipzig. The family settled in Minnesota and then in Idaho. Catherina had nine brothers and sisters.

Catherina married Julius A. Herman (b. 4-6-1877 Nebraska; d. 7-10-1945 Idaho; buried Mt. Calvary Cemetery, Nampa ID) on May 3, 1904 in Canyon County Idaho. They had two children, Dorothy Helen (b. 1907 Canyon County ID); d. before 1920) and Raymond H (b. 1909 Canyon County ID). I do not know the dates of birth/death on either of the children. A picture taken in 1909  is the only one I have of Dorothy. Raymond was listed in Catherina's obituary as a surviving son. I do not have any pictures of him. There were two surviving grandchildren mentioned in the obituary but it does not mention names.
