Walter Grenzig was found in the 1930 US Census living at 2849 White St. Dubuque IA. We contacted the Carnegie Stout Public Library, Dubuque IA, in 2003 at 319-589-4225, and obtained three newspaper articles as follows:

Telegraph-Herald News Paper, Dubuque IA,
Three (3) Articles:

Article 1) Oct 5th 1940, Walter Grenzig to Observe 50th Wedding Monday P10, C2-3-4

Article 2) Dec 18th, 1944, Mrs. Anna Muntz (Grenzig) Obituary, P10, C5

Family Tree

We were able to formulate the following family tree based on these articles and using the various US census data from 1880 to 1930 available from the ancestory.com website. We are still researching this Grenzig branch to see if we can form a connection to the John A. Grenzig Sr. branch or the Friedrich A. Grenzig branch.
