Anton Konantz was born in the Principality of Hohenzollern in 1808, came to America in 1834 and located in Quincy. Here he married Henrietta Schepperle; she was born in the Grand duchy of Baden in 1815 and came here with the early pioneers. Anton Konantz was a shoemaker by trade, following the calling for many years until his death in 1860, his wife dying later. William Konantz, the oldest son, born in 1841, was engaged in different business enterprises until his death some years ago. Henry Konantz, another son, was in the grocery business for many years, until his death several years ago.
