Helen, I remember my dad speaking alot about his uncle John Wedel and always about my great-grandfather BJ who I never had the pleasure to know. I do know that BJ and Carrie(great-grandmother)are from the Rogers and Heidenheimer Tx. area.They had a son Alfred James and a daughter Bealuah, sadly, this is all I know. If you have any info. on the Wedel family from this area, I would greatly appreciate hearing from you.
