Wolf family, Ernest Selz, Fannie Sabel

Classification: Query
Surnames: Wolf, Selz, Sabel
I have a Helene "Lena" Wolf in my tree, first wife of my uncle's grandfather Ernest Selz, a dry goods merchant.

From what I've found online her parents were Joseph Wolf and Johanna Koch from Guntersblum, Germany. They settled in Louisville.

Lena and Ernest had at least 3 children: Samuel b 1890, Jennie b 1892, and Leonard born 1894, one week before Lena died.

Lena died 15 Dec 1894 in Louisville; I don't know where she was buried. Ernest married again, to a Catherine Dora Gillett in Manatee, Florida, on 19 Sept 1900 and had 3 more children: Ernestine b 1902, Alton Ernest b 1904, and Bertram Ernest b 1908. I can't locate the family in 1910 and in 1920 Dora is widowed. I'd like to find out more about Ernest or locate descendents of his.

His daughter Ernestine was my great granduncle's mother and spoke of relatives in Tampa who had the Maas department store there.

I would also like to know of there was a Louisville Wolf brother who died in the 1880s or 90s who married Fannie Sabel; she was married about 1886 and widowed in 1900.
