Am researching the KENGLA line in DC and Maryland. Have found a Eunice KENGLA, 17, as niece in the Charles R. KENGLA household in the 1900 census for DC. She next appears in 1910 as the wife of Julian Edward LEWIS. Have never been able to connect her to her parents, who would have been one of Charles R. KENGLA's siblings. Is anyone researching the KENGLA/LEWIS line?
