Re: GWF Hegel Desendants

I too was told that we were descendents of GWF Hegel. His ancestral tree is available online but I was only able to find his descedents in the book, "Karl Hegel-HIstoriker im 19. Jahrhundert"; the book is in German and I was able to get it through an inter-library loan. It lists the 3 children of GWF Hegel and Maria Helena Susanna von Tucher; Susanna Hegel (1812), Immanuel Hegel (1814-1891) m. 1845 to Friederike Flottwell and m. 1865 to Clara von Flottwell; and of course Hegel's son Ludwig Friedrich Fischer (1807-1831). It only lists the children of Karl Hegel and Susanna Maria von Tucher m. 1850; I am not sure if this is because the book is about him or if Immanuel had no children. The children are as follows: Anna Maria Carolina Hegel (1851-1927) m.1875 to Felix Klein, Luise Friederike Caroline Hegel (1853-1924) m. 1872 to Eugen Cornelius Josef Lommel, Marie Hegel (1855-1929), Georg Hegel (1856-1933) m. 1896 to Maria von Rucker, Sophie Louise Hegel (1861-1940) Wilhelm Sigmund Hegel (1863-1945) m 1895 to Otillie Margareta Christine Klinger, Friedrich August Hegel (1864-1865), and Gottlieb Friedrich Hegel (1867-1874). My great great grandfather William J Hegel born July 1839 in Germany, m. 1861 to Catherine Helfer in St. Louis Missouri, and died after 1910 doesn't fit into this family tree, so if I am related, it is not a direct line. I hope you have better luck!
