I am looking for ancestors and descendents of Henry Wessel and Marie Helfers (Hoeffer).
I have nothing on Henry Sr. except he died in 1893. Marie was born on September 9, 1834 and died on April 17, 1919. She is buried in Madison, Lake County, South Dakota. Her father was D.L. Bargman. I have been led to believe as I was growing up that I had a grandmother in this line who was of native American heritage. Could Marie be her?
Their children were: 1. Henry Frederick Wessel b. 1856 in Douglas Grove, Illinois. (This is my line)
2. Fred J. Wessel 1866-1936
3. George F. Wessel 1872- 1958, m. Caroline
4. Ella C. Wessel 1874 - ?
5. Adelia Wessel
6. Mary Wessel
7. Anna Wessel
If you have any info on any of these children, please contact me. Thank you.
