I'm looking for information on my great, great grandfather, Wendel Calvin born around 1825. At times he is listed as Wendel and at other times he is listed as Vander Calvin on records. Wendel/Vander was born in Penn, and resided in Cincinnati from 1864 (perhaps earlier) until his death in 1900. I believe he was married twice; his second wife was Catherine Whitehead, listed as Catherine Weiskopf in records from the First German Baptist Church in Pittsburgh. His first wife may have also been named Catherine. Several members of the family are buried at Spring Grove Cemetery in Cincinnati. Wendel/Vander had the following children: Emma (1857-1864), Emma (1864-1866), William Lee (1868-?), Caroline (1870-1871), Joseph M (1872-?), Edward E (1874-1948), John (1876-?), Isabella (1878-?) and Eugenia (1881-?). Wendel/Vander may have had brothers Andrew and Joseph also residing in Cincinnati. By 1907 son Joseph M and wife Mary E Calvin, as well as widow Catherine were living in Pittsburgh. Later the widow Catherine lived with daughter Isabel who was married to John Thompson and later to Thomas Moss.
I would like to find parents and siblings of Wendel/Vander Calvin and birth information. I would also like to find a death record for Joseph M Calvin, my great grandfather. I know he died between the 1930 census and 1935. He worked for B&O Railroad and may have died while working as a conductor. So I don't know if he was in Penn or somewhere else.
