I am looking for information about a Susan Katherine Specht born March 29, 1870 in Tamaqua, Pennsylvania. She married Edward L. Roth of Tennessee and had one daughter, Ethel Ernestine Roth Cohen (1893-1948). Katherine "Katie" Specht Roth died July 3, 1947 in Knoxville, Tennessee.
On Katie's death cert completed by her daughter Ethel, Katie's parents are listed as Joseph Specht and Susan Voneilensteine, both of Germany. However, I find Katie living with Conrad and Augusta Specht, both of Germany, and is listed as "daughter" in Tamaqua in 1880. In 1900, Augusta is living with Katie and husband Ed in Tennessee, but she is listed as a "boarder" and not "mother-in-law." (Although Ed's brother is also living in the home as is listed as "boarder" rather than "brother," so maybe a lazy census taker?)
Maybe "Joesph and Susan" are actually "Conrad and Augusta"? I just came by a pile of photographs of the family, but none are labeled. I would love to compare them with yours!
