Descendants of Johann Richartz and Maria Catharina Stock

Johann Richartz was born in 1813 in Richrath-Reusrath, Rheinland, Germany, the son of Johann Richartz and Maria Gertrud Bonn. He worked as a gardener. In 1835, he married Maria Catharina Stock in Monheim am Rhein, Germany. She was born in 1814, possibly in Dusseldorf, the daughter of Peter Stock and Anna Margaretha Vollbach. At least four of their children immigrated to the United States, but little more is known of Johann and Maria Catharina.

I can’t possibly share all of my family photographs here. Instead, I’ve chosen a select few favorites, mainly group photos. More pictures, particularly of individuals, can be found through my Thal-Gephart Family Tree accessible through my Ancestry profile. I am always looking for more pictures. If you have any to share, please contact me.

This photo is labeled, “Peter Richartz and wife Anna Katherine.” Location and date of the photo are unknown. There is some indication it was printed in Muncie, Indiana, but Anna did not come to the United States.
