From "The Britzius Story" by Dianne Z. Stevens, 2013:
12 - Heinrich Britzius ( Dec 1861 Ohio – 1928 California), also known as Henry, was the last child of Theobald and Christina Elizabeth to be born in Ohio. He married Lettie Frances Moore in Faulkton, South Dakota and had four children. They moved to California. The 1920 census shows Henry is a jeweler running his own business in Gilroy, California.
