Wendel-Germany to New York
I am trying to find information on Johann (John) Gottlieb Matthias Wendel, his parents, siblings, etc.He was born in either Germany or Denmark in the mid 1700's and came to America before 1800.He married Elizabeth, sister of John Jacob Astor and was in the real estate and fur business in New York.
I have a newspaper article that says my great, great, great grandmother was a niece of John Gottlieb Wendel. Problem is the article doesn't give her name.It is possible Elizabeth who married a Reding.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
