Mathias Matthews 6 children were Harold, Norbert, Raymond, Emil and Emmett-twins- and Mary.Mathias' mother Margaretha was said to have died shortly after his birth.
Margaretha's former husband was Ambrose N Hummel. Her children by Hummel were Kate, Mary Ann, Elizabeth (Lizzie) and Frederick.Hummel later married Margaretha's sister Johanna (Anna).
Mary Ann Hummel Simonis was my G.Great Grandmother.After Margaretha left, the Hummel girls were taken in by the Mathias Simonis family, and Mary Ann married one of their sons, the younger Mathias.
Looking for information on what happened to Margaretha and why her children had to be taken in by the Simonis family.I also have information to share with interested family members....thanks
