This photo of Max Eltzholtz was taken at a greenhouse at Ditlev Eltzholtz and Company. The photo was un-dated. Some evidence suggests that Max took over Ditlev Eltzholtz and Company after Hans Christian Juel Hansen became unable to manage the business due to severe arthritis, perhaps before HCJH died in February, 1946. It is possible that Max was helping his parents before the death of HCJH and then assumed the business and changed the name to Max Eltzholtz and Company. Max then left Ringe to settle in Copenhagen prior to his death in 1955. It is not widely known just when the seed business in Ringe was finally closed or who was in charge when the business ended. Please use the COMMENTS if you can share information regarding the end of Ditlev's seed and nursery business.

Elisa and Johan Christoffer Eltzholtz (b. 05/05/1869) in a photo posed in Denmark at perhaps Johans age of 3 years or so. This is a guess on my part. What do you think? Leave a comment. Photo Circa 1871 - 1872.

Hans Christian Juel Hansen married Marie Louise Eltzholtz in 1896 and became a partner with Ditlev Christian Ernst Eltzholtz in the seed and nursery business, Ditlev Eltzholtz and Company in Ringe, Fyn, Denmark. The children of Hans Christian and Marie Louise were granted the right to use the name Eltzholtz and their descendants are living in Denmark and America.

Mary Madeline Eltzholtz daughter of Harald Louis Adolf Eltzholtz was the first child born to Harald and Mary Egan Eltzholtz. She is posed with her baby brother Harald Ditlev Eltzholtz. Madeline as she was known was born on January 16, 1899 and married John Joseph Sweeny on September 21, 1932. There were no children from this marriage. Harald Ditlev Eltzholtz was born May 2, 1902. Mary Frances Eltzholtz Middleton, daughter of Harald Ditlev, remembers seeing this picture while living at the family home in Montclair, New Jersey. Mary Frances said she was told that it was very common for all babies to be dressed in gowns because it was easier.

Viggo Eltzholtz at the steps to the Head Gardeners House at Brahetrolleborg. Viggo became the head gardener at Brahetrolleborg after his father Johan Christoffer Eltzholtz. Some evidence tends to suggest that Ditlev at Glorup and Viggo at Brahetrolleborg kept in touch and shared ideas and successes.

From left to right: Elisa, Anne Dorthea, Marie Louise, Carl Frederik Albert, Ditlev Christian Ernst, and Harald Louis Adolf in a picture I believe to be taken about Summer, 1874. My guess is based on Marie Louise looking to be about 2 years of age. Another son Johan Christoffer Eltzholtz born 05/05/1869 is missing from the picture as is Ernst Christian Ditlev Eltzholtz born 03/20/1874. Ernst Christian died 06/23/1874 having lived for only 95 days.
