I have often wondered what happened to Annabelle.My side of the family recounts that my father (Walther) was madly in love with her and was never quite the same when he came back from NY without her. My uncle (Martin Andersen) recalled their marriage, in what he called "the big church on Farmington Avenue. For some reason I assumed it was it West Hartford. Shortly after I has been confirmed Catholic at the Cathedral of St. Joseph, something gently piqued my memory and I had the rectory check the church's marriage records. I remember being stunned because many years before, my father took me to see the great fire at the cathedral. I never understood his interest in this and he never told me, all I remember was that he was very sad.
I now live in Tallassee, Alabama with my wife Sherrie.
I would welcome any contacts
