My father's paternal grandmother was Laura Virginia WEIKEL of Philadelphia (1873 - 1946)
Laura's parents: Eugene WEIKEL (1844 - 1904) Sarah V WEIKEL(1843 - 1884) I do not know her maiden name. She is buried at Greenwood/Pythias cemetery on Adams Ave in NE Philly.
Sarah and Eugene had one other child that I am aware of besides Laura, John Weikel (Born May 1870 in Phila, PA)
Eugene's parents were; Peter WEIKEL (Born abt 1810) Possible occupation: druggist Mary GARDNER (Born abt 1805)
Laura and her husband James Frances DONEGAN had at least 3 children: William, George and my grandfather, James F. DONEGAN, Jr who died in 1985.
Laura, her husband and three sons are buried in a plot in Yeadon, PA.
Peter and Mary had at least 6 children: William ABT 1831 Eugene ABT Jan 14 1844 - this is my GGgrandfather. Albert ABT 1842 Orlando ABT 1837 died 1st day of Battle of Stoney River, TN Adalaide ABT 1840 Ferdinand ABT 1847 - may have lived in Camden as an adult and worked for railway where he damaged his hand.
Is this William Weikel the one who owned the spice company on Front Street?!
