Entz heritage to be meeting topic
The lives of two West Prussian emigrants will be the focus of a Fredric Remington Area Historical Society meeting at 7 p.m. May 7 at Remington High School, Whitewater.
Viola (Entz) Udd will present “Bernhard and Marie Wilhelmine Entz: Their Lineage, Lives, and Letters.” The Bernhard Entz family emigrated from West Prussia in 1891 and settled on a farm one mile south of Newton. The presentation will focus on the life and times of Bernhard and Marie Entz.
Udd, from Missouri Valley, Iowa, has compiled the Bernhard Entz heritage into a book which she hopes to publish. Her presentation will draw from the manuscript.
