Re: Fenzel Update
I wish their could be a connection between us, but aside from first names i don't see a connection between us. I'm looking for a George Fenzel was a farmer he Married Barbetta (maiden name Unknown) Unknown as to where they were married. I know lived in Reichenschwand Bei Hersbruck, Bavaria, Germany. They had a son that I’m aware of: Georg and a daughter Barbetta she was born on July 22nd 1881. at age 23 she had a illegitimate child: Anna Gertrud Fenzel her father is unknown. Barbetta stayed with her parents until 1923 when she connected with Andreas Friedrich, somehow he connected Barbetta with his older brother Erhardt in America. Erhardt had lost his First wife in 1920. I'm unsure as to how it happened but Erhardt Sent Money to Barbetta and She and her daughter left Germany and Came to America When she arrived Erhardt and Barbetta Married on December 18th 1923 at Ellis Island in the County of New York, in the State of New York. They then returned to Erhardt's home Clinton, Massachusetts. On March 20th 1925 Erhardt Adopted Gertrude. Gertrude’s name was legally changed to "Anna Gertrude Friedrich" but everyone still called her Gertrude. In later years Gertrude Friedrich Moved to New Jersey and stayed with Erhardts Sister Elizabeth (Friedrich) Doerfler. Gertrude married Carl Haupt in New Jersey I don't know where Carl was born, I only know when he was born, Carl Haupt was Born January 26th 1908 and Died in February 1981 Berkeley Heights, Union County, New Jersey
Anna Gertrude (Friedrich) Haupt Died April 14th1994 in Berkeley Heights, Union County, New Jersey.
