Not sure this this is the same family

I'm descended from Wilhelm Roentz/Rontz/Rentz from Prussia.  No other details known about his family.  He sailed from Antwerp Belgium in 1854 to NY and settled in Illinois.  I believe his wife's name was Catherine and they had 5 or 6 children.

I'm now working on updating the patriarch page and would like to add your patriarch. Would you please include places of birth, if known. Also, please include your e-mail address, writing out the word "at" rather than using the @ symbol. You can view examples by visiting the "Patriarch Page" at the Renz - Rentz project site. Many thanks. Chris Renz.
