Larry, I don't know if your information helped Debbie, but you've named my ancestors. My grandfather Charles Andrew Dressel, b. 1879 m. Julia Steffens in ? in Alpine Twsp., north of Grand Rapids, MI.Children were George F., b. ?, Charles Edward, b. 1917, Margaret, b. ? and Catherine, b.? ,d. after a couple of days.My father Charles E. m. Ruth J. Topolski in 1945.Children were Charles Edward, b. 1947, Paul Michael, b. 1950 and Susan Kay, b. 1952.
My grandfather was an upholsterer in the furniture industry in Grand Rapids, MI.I and Paul still live in the west Michigan area. Susan lives in CT.Obviously, I’m missing some of the years and middle names, and if I’ve written something incorrectly my siblings will correct it.
Thanks for the information.Before your note, I never really knew how we were related to the Dudley’s who used to show up at local family reunions and parties. Chuck Dressel
