The reason that there is confusion about Mary Saffert is that her first child, Joseph Peter was illegitimate...he is in the church birth records as Saffert...becomes Seifert within two years (no records of marriage that would have changed both baby and momma name) ...Mary marries George Wersal in November of 1892 and has her first Wersal baby in February in 1893...quite the scandalous lady...

BIG family secret for Joseph Peter Seifert...never told his own kids! Interestingly, on his application for SS and his obituary he listed his mother as Mary Rothmeier and we have no clue why...except maybe taking his aunt's last name would foil any attempts to chase down the real story!
