Hi Peg; this is very interesting; I would like to connect with you; I'm looking for a Henrietta Kahn, married to a Hermann Judell, and I just found a possible link on the LDS site between a Henrietta and a Leopold Kahn, born 1842 from Bruecken, Pfalz, Bayern.According to this record, both a Leopold and Henrietta Kahn are listed as being born to Abraham Kahn and Helene Joseph, and Henrietta born 2 years apart. . .??Coincidence to match your information??
Of course, this record not verified; however, additional information which perks my curiousity; the similarity to the Judell/Jeidel names in your family, the fact that my g-grandmother, Adele, born to Hermann and Henrietta, had an uncle named Leopold Judell from Hamburg(maybe just a coincidence), Adele and Hermann(her father)and Henrietta show up on the 1880 Census in CA, but must have gone back to Germany at some point because my grandfather was born in Germany.Adele's husband, a Louis Leffmann, seemed to go back and forth from Germany to America frequently. Adele returned to USA in 1915.
I do not know any town locations other than what is listed on the 1880 Census that Henrietta was either from Bayern or Baden;
Anyway, would love to hear if you think there is any connection. ..
