Re: Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel Decendants
Hi Elizabeth--I'm not sure if my Hegels are your Hegels, but there are some similarities here. My great-grandmother, Katharine Hegel, came from Alsace-Lorraine. She was born in Mulhouse (January 1872) & came to this country in the 1870s, along w/her mother & older sister. I believe the sister was Mary, but am not sure, & that she settled on the Jersey Shore somewhere. There were also cousins named Paul & Violet from that side of the Hegels as well. The family story has always been that we are descended from GWF Hegel as well. I'm sorry I don't have more information; there's no one from that family line left & my great-aunts were pretty sketchy as to what they did know. Hope this helps!
