Searching for descendants of John & Margaret Etzel who married in Hesse-Darmstadt, Germany about 1834.Their known children were: Christina born 1835 John b 1837 Henrietta b 1842 Mary Ann born 12 May 1847 all above born in Germany Their yougest, Henry was born 1849 in Paterson, Passaic Co., New Jersey, USA.
I found them in the 1850 and 1860 census but the name was spelled EDSALL. John Sr. was a farm hand in 1850 and a carpenter in 1860.In 1870 Margaret is found with her son Henry age 21. I assume all other childen were married. Margaret is still in Paterson in 1892 listed in the directory as a widow.
I have more info on Mary Ann who immigrated to Canada between 1871 and 1877 but would like to know what happened to her siblings.
