I may have replied to this query elsewhere, but I've indexed a clipping in the local German papers concerning Josef "Bartel", referencing Barbara. I've also indexed family death notices for an Alois Hinger.
Spellings in the German-American papers can vary as widely as the English language papers or other records.
"Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950).

Indexing of these papers started in 2007 and continues today.
