I am looking for the name of my great-great grandfather Cawelti born in the 1850s or 1860s. He and his wife (maiden name of Fay) had several children in Ventura County, CA. Their names included JOHN CLARENCE CAWELTI born 12 January 1890, CHESTER L. Cawelti born 20 August 1884, ERNEST EDWIN CAWELTI born 12 December 1897, and my great-grandfather Norman Cawelti, born in Ventura Co., CA on July 29, 1880.
His father, John Cawelti was an immigrant from Wurtemberg, Germany, born in 1829. John lived in Milwaukee, Ohio, Iowa and California. He married a the widow of Jud Sipp in Cincinnati, OH in 1852. She was also a German immigrant with the maiden name of Wagner. They had a total of nine children I believe, born in Iowa and California. Their names included DORA LILLIE, born 17 March 1866;
ANDREW EDMAN, born 26 May 1875 and others.
If you are related to Caweltis in Ventura or Kern Counties, chances are that you are related to me. If you have any information on this line or have any questions please email me. See my family tree online too.
[My grandfather is Robert Norman Cawelti. His brothers and sister are Harold, Lawrence, Wilfred, Amy (Janice), and Frank.]
