Re: Schatzel Family, Brooklyn NY
My husband:Gerald Weddigen, son of Edward Weddigen and Harriette Creegan.
Edward Weddigen, b 17 Sept 1907, Brooklyn, NY; d 17 Dec 2002, Detroit, MI, son of Otto Gustav Weddigen and Elsie Schatzel.Siblings: William Russell Weddigen and Janice Elise Weddigen also born in Brooklyn.
Otto Weddigen, b 15 March 1876, Brooklyn, NY, d 18 Jan, 1937, Detroit.Worked as a haberdasher in Brooklyn.Co-owned a men'a hat shop there.Buried Fair Grove Cemetary, Flushing, NY,Schatzel plot.Son of Otto(?) Weddigen, b 16 Apr 1837 in Germany I think.He may have been one of many children - maybe 9, most died in childhood.Mother also died young.
Elsie Schatzel, b 29 Jan 1878, Brooklyn I think, d 2 Oct 1963, Detroit.Buried in Fair Grove Cemetary.Elsie siblings include Henry Schatzel and Josephine Schatzel.
Elsie, dau of ____ Schatzel, b in Germany, baker by trade, d bef 1915 in Brooklyn and Caroline Morrow, b abt 1839 in Germany, d bef 1915 in Brooklyn.
They have been very difficult to trace because of various spellings of the Weddigen name and because I don't have Ward identification, an address for them in Brooklyn or a father's first name.
Hope you might be able to help.
