Xavier FLAIZ, born 1819 in Gruol, Sigmaringen, was a shoemaker. In the fall of 1839 he came to Quincy, and in 1841 married Maria Gesina BERNZEN, born in Lotten, Hanover, in 1820. Xavier FLAIZ was an expert at his trade, being known for his splendid workmanship in fine ladies' shoes. He also did quite a business in real estate. May 20, 1894, he died, while his wife lived until February 12, 1906. Two sons are among the living, Frederick and Eugene FLAIZ, both in the grocery business. One daughter also survives, Mrs. Wilhelmina WELTIN, widow of Michael WELTIN, the miller, for many years manager of the Farmers Mill in Quincy.
