I've been trying to connect my Spiering line to ancestors for a while. I recently obtained a marriage record for my great grand father Albert Edward Cavanaugh b. 1891 in San Francisco, Ca and wife Gladys Lillian A Spiering b. bet 1894-1897 probably in SFO. Gladys Spiering's parents (Napa, CA 1916 marriage records in Latin) were Augusto Spiering and Ludovica (Louisa?) Gillen (Arnold?). I found Ausust F. Spiering (seaman/laborer) in SFO records between 1896-1910. I believe he is August Friedrich Wilhelm Spiering b. 1856 son of Carl Spiering of Manitowoc, WI. Have not found him in any records living or dead after 1910. Do you know anything about this line?
There are two Louisa Gillens born about 1866-1867 (in San Francisco (daughter of Michael and Isabella) and Napa (daughter of Neal and Mary). Does anyone have information about Louisa Gillen?
