Hi all.  I'm looking to fill in some blanks on my mother's side of the family tree from her father's side (My mom's mom's mom was adopted so I can only go as far as I can with that).  

John and Hellen Schultz were my great grandparents on my mother's side.  Helen's maiden name was Klemp.  Her parents were August and Mary Klemp from Breslau, Germany.  Their children's names were (not sure why it is listed in this order, as I don't think it was order of birth):  Anthony, Theodore, Helen, Martha, John and Albert.  Theodore died at age 2.
August left Germany for Buffalo NY shortly after the birth of Albert.   The rest of the family joined him in 1881 via boat to Ellis Island.

For Schultz: August Schultz was from Dessau, Germany.  He married a woman named Caroline.  One of the children, John (birth name was Johann) was my Great Great Grandfather.   John was 7 years old when August Schultz died.  John left for Buffalo NY when he was 18 years old.
List of children for August and Caroline Schultz: Johann (John), August, Otillia, Franz, and Francesca.

John Schultz married Helen Klemp on May 29th, 1894 in St Ann's church (I believe it's either in Buffalo or Cheektowaga, NY).  They had the following children (Joseph was my grandfather) :  Marie, Alois, Martha, Joseph, Helen, Edward, Dorothy, Elanor, Clara and Lucille.

Joseph (born in 1901-died in 1975) married Irene Walsh:  Their children were: Raymond, Donald, Joan and Elaine and Mary (Mary died very young).  Elaine is my mom

If there is any help, I would love to get them linked up in my tree on FamilySearch.  Thank you!
