Looking for death or cemetery record for Gotthard Koch (some in our family think it was
Henry Gottlieb Koch). He was born Nov. 9, 1816 in Wurtemberg Germany. He died May 19,
1895. I know that his son Samuel Koch lived in Wichita in the late 1880's and early 1890's
before striking out for the Oklahoma land rush in the mid 1890's. Sam was a clerk at a
Wichita hotel where he met his wife. When he settled in Oklahoma he was the first mayor of
a little town called Pondcreek.

buried. Many in his family returned to Toledo OH which is where his widow is buried, along
with many other descendants.
