I neglected to tell you that Margaret Schneider is the daughter of Carl Brandel.
This is a follow-up to a posting I made Sat. 2/2/02:I have located information on John Lou Brandel's wife Clara.She was born in Owosso, Mi May 19, 1883 and died in Aurora, Illinois March 13, 1965.She was buried in Owosso at Oak Hill Cemetery.
Their son's name was John M. Brandel, he practiced medicine in Owosso for a couple of years - at least from 1939 until 1942.His wife's name was Elizabeth - surname unknown, and they had 2 daughters-names and dates unknown.
If Dr. Lauren Brandel Zoschnick replies, maybe I will learn more.
