I am looking for descendants/ family lines of WAEFFLER from the canton of Neuchatel, Switzerland.
Other Waeffler spellings include: Waffler, Wafler, Waefler
My great-great-great grandfather is Frederick "Fritz" Waeffler who was born on 7/11/1848 in Neuchatel, Switzerland and died sometime after the turn of the century.
I do not know who his parents were, but he married Hannah Marie (Maria?) Speicher (c.1847-1897).
Together they had at least 2 daughters;
1. Rosa Waeffler (6/16/1869-6/16/1931) who married Adrian Adrianus Guignard (8/31/1869-11/19/1909) and
2. Bertha Waeffler (10/28/1872-6/5/1936) who married George Carlo Sandoz (4/22/1875-4/17/1944)
In addition, Hannah Speicher had a son from a previous marriage, Edward Albert Bill (12/17/1866-11/12/1945).
Edward Bill, Rosa & Adrian Guignard and Bertha & George Sandoz and their families all moved to and eventually died in Utah, USA.
Per George Sandoz's immigration manifest at Elis Island, NY, he lists Frederick as contact "back home" with address of
"Ave. Ronde 43, La Chaux-De-Fonds, Neuchâtel, Switzerland".
Any information you could share with me regarding this Waeffler family and their ancestors would be greatly appreciated!!
