German relatives who helped establish Quincy presented key to city

A family visiting from Germany with ancestors who founded Calftown in Quincy were presented with a key to the city Thursday morning.

Quincy Mayor Kyle Moore and Alderwoman Terri Heincke presented the coveted award to Maria Hoddinghaus.

Her nephew Thomas Hoddinghaus spoke on their behalf.

"Our relatives here in America, in Quincy, made a great job, growing the city and left their footsteps in Quincy," Hoddinghaus said. "Now with the key in our hands, we're proud of that."

The family will spend the rest of the week and weekend touring the Gem City.
