Great grandmother Koontz was the oldest child of great great grandmother Gardner and gg grandfather Gardner, but the second child for gg grandfather Gardner. With his first wife, Louise Kohler, Grandfather Gardner had a son, William Fritz (1861). Louis Kohler Gardner passed away due to complications from that child birth.
