More data: Augustus (Gus) Mittelstaedt was one of ten children born to Augustus Mittelstaedt and Margretta Becker. The children were as follows: Sons: Emil, John, George, Edward, Theodore, and Gus (Augustus John). Daughters: Elsie, Josie, Emma, and Carrie. Only Augustus went to Pennsylvania, but he also worked in Nova Scotia and Virginia (c.1910). His nine brothers and sisters are believed to have stayed in New York??? Does anyone know about any of them? Gus' daughter Ruby (now 89 years old) sent the family history to a Mittelstaedt relation in New York City some years ago, and we'd like to restablish contact.
