Re: Wohlschlegels to New York - 1870
In the course of my research on my Rice line, the second wife of my great-grandfather, Vera May Kenfield of Naples, Ontario County, New York, later married one Frank H. Wohlschlegel on 24 April 1961 in West Barre, Orleans County, NY.Born on 22 Oct 1907 in Naples, NY, Frank was the son of Fred Wohlschlegel and Caroline Werder. Tragically, Frank died as a result of a self-inflicted gunshot to the head on 23 April 1972 at his home.He now sleeps in the Rose Ridge Cemetery, Naples, NY.
According to his obituary, Fred Wohlschlegel was born on 13 Jan 1851 in Baden, Germany.He died on 15 Nov 1923 in Naples, NY.Caroline Werder, Fred's wife (and Frank's mother), was born in Jul 1863 in Switzerland, according to the 1900 US Census of Naples.She died on 28 Jun 1944 in Naples.Both Fred and Caroline are buried in the Rose Ridge Cemetery.
Anyone have the particulars on the ancestry and origin of Fred and Caroline (Werder) Wohlschlegel?Their birthplaces, parents, etc.?
