                                            The Original Prussian German families       
                              To Belknap Township [Presque Isle County], Michigan

   NOTE: All information provided is to be used only as a resource for anyone researching a family line that originally lived in Belknap Township.
   The list of original families to Belknap Township was obtained from the records of St. Michael’s Evangelical Lutheran Church of Belknap and from the early U.S. federal census records.  A good number of their offspring moved to other townships in Presque Isle County and to other locations in Michigan and other states.
   Most of the original surnames contain names of their offspring and their succeeding generations.  Church and census records were used for names and dates.  In some instances, other persons provided family data to expand family lines.  Regardless, this is not meant to be an accurate nor complete recording of a family tree. 
 
The Pastors who served St. Michael’s from 1873 to the present recorded names, baptisms, confirmations, marriages, and deaths.   Many names will also include baptism, confirmation, and marriage dates from other church records: namely, St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church of Rogers City, Immanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church of Moltke, St. John’s Lutheran Church of Hagensville, St. Peter’s Evangelical Lutheran Church of Metz, St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church of Rural Posen, St. James Evangelical Lutheran Church of Moltke, and from Rev. Christian Schwan’s diaries that are located in the St. James Evangelical Lutheran Church of Moltke.
   Special credit goes to Norma nee Trapp Beebe for copying the St. Michael’s church records, to Neil Altman for copying the St. John’s Hagensville and St. Peter’s Metz records, and to Richard G.  Boyd for copying the St. James Moltke records and the Rev. Schwan’s diaries.

Myron 'Mike' Peltz was the Grand Marshal of the 2005 Nautical Festival Parade in Rogers City.
Mike Peltz named grand marshall of summer festival parade

"It is quite an honor when I look back at the list. To be included in that group of people--and I knew all of them--is an honor. I really appreciate that," said Myron (Mike) Peltz in response to his selection as the grand marshal for the 2005 Nautical City parade. Mike Peltz has built a life around helping others, beginning in the early days of the local bowling alley where he was paid $1.50 a night to set pins, keep score or sit in the foul line box. Much of his life has been doing service for people either in jobs he has had or the many organizations he has given his time to over the years.
Following graduation from high school in 1949, he continued working at his father's hardware store in what is now the Hiedemann building on South Third Street. Father Emil, a prominent state representative, who served the area from 1944 until his death at age 58 in 1960, had sons Wally and Mike to run the store while he served in Lansing. "He would have gone a long ways in state government had he lived longer. When he died he was pretty powerful down there. He served as chairman of the roads and bridges committee, and the conservation committee," he said.

Without the influence of Rep. Emil Peltz, the Mackinaw Bridge might never have been built. "The bridge was a done deal. It was gone. There wasn't going to be a bridge and he somehow, as politics goes, "blackmailed" the other side, politically. Even the people who wanted to build the bridge couldn't believe that he saved the bridge," Mike said. BELIEVING THE draft was inevitable, Mike enlisted in the U.S. Army, spending time stateside from 1951-1953. "I didn't want to wait for the draft, I just wanted to go in on my own," he said. When he got out of the Army, he went back to work at the hardware store. After that he had a bottled gas business, then went to work with the Rogers City Power Company before it was bought out by Consumers Power.

In 1965, he went to work as a policeman for Rogers City. He served several years before joining the county sheriff's department. In 1976 he became undersheriff for sheriff Duane Badder then became sheriff after Badder was fatally wounded on the job in 1979. He brought stability to the force which had just lost its leader in a terrible incident. Peltz successfully ran for sheriff in 1980 and was defeated in the 1984 election.

BEYOND HIS work in serving people, Mike's life has been full with volunteer jobs of all kinds. He served as a manager, coach and chief of umpires for many years in the early days of the Rogers City Little League program. "My dad, years ago, did all of the fireworks. Then Wally and I were in charge of not only purchasing the fireworks but firing them. We did that for 30 years, probably," he said. As a member of the Rogers City Serviceman's Club, he served several terms as president. For many years he has been Officer in Charge at the Memorial Day observance. He was in on the ground floor of the local chapter of the Big Brothers and Big Sisters and has served on the Nautical City Festival committee.

FOR MANY YEARS he has served as president of the Rogers City Optimist Club, helping organize many events for the area's youth. Mike raised the money for the Korean War Memorial, which is on the courthouse lawn in Rogers City. He worked on the design and construction of the memorial. "It was overdue and relatively easy to get done. The committee had no idea how to raise the funds, so I said give me a week. I went out in a week's time and I had the money," Mike said. The fund drive had money left over, which the local group sent to the World War II Memorial in Washington, D. C. "Word got around that I was doing that and I kept getting checks after we had reached our goal," he said. "I'm proud of that. It is a nice memorial."

FOR FUN, MIKE has always enjoyed bowling, earning local "bowler of the year" honors five times. He still bowls in leagues, carrying a 180-plus average. "I started working in that bowling alley when it was built. I started working for Frank Buza and Chief Mertz. I set pins, kept score, sat in the foul box, and worked the candy counter as a young kid. All of the older guys were in the war, so the younger kids had a good opportunity to work," he said. Married to his wife Barb for 52 years, his main love is his family. "I really enjoy my family and my grandkids," he said. They have two daughters, Marcia and Jenny, and two sons, Randy and Terry.

THEY HAVE EIGHT grandchildren, the oldest of whom, Steven, is serving in the Navy's nuclear submarine program. "Everyone needs grandpas. The trouble is they are old when you get them and they don't last too long," he mused. For the past 20 years Mike has had a second career working as an assistant for Beck Funeral Home in Rogers City.

"I just like to help people. Wherever there is something going on I just like to help. I enjoy fixing things, too. I've been fixing things for people for 50 years and people are still calling me," he said. Come festival parade time in August, people will have a chance to honor one who has helped many over the years.
