Mary Motzko

The third child of Philipp and Maria Motzko was my Grandmother - Mary Motzko. (b. Avon, Stearns County, Minnesota on 9-17-1883; d. 5-19-1953, buried Holy Cross Cemetery, Pomona CA). She suffered from Hodgkin's Disease.

Elmer David Troyer (b. 9/4/1884; d. 3/27/1963; buried Holy Cross Cemetery, Pomona CA) and Mary Motzko were married on September 10, 1908. They had two daughters Margaret (my mother) and Dorothy Helen.

After I finish posting about the 10 children of Philipp and Maria I will start doing some 'memory pages'...if anyone has special memories of their ancestors in the Motzko line please e-mail me and let me know.

Anyone reading this who is related to these people please contact me via this blog...I'll get back to you and we can share tons of additional information.
