Hello - Found a HENRY EDEL in 1850 Phila. Census, age 20, living with ANN age 50 , prob. his mother - also in hshld. is ANN LAVER age 50 ( ? ) hard to read --- appears to be mis-spelled, name spelled EDAL instead of EDEL..... this HENRY appears to be my Gr Grandfather, that would make him b. 1830, ANN b. 1800- is there any information out there who the father was ? What EDEL had married an ANN , say abt. 1820-25 ? were there any siblings ? when did the father die ? Could it have been JOHN ( JOHANN ) EDEL, b. 1770, son of CHRISTIAN , who died 1769 when his wife CATHERINE was pregnant ? HENRY is listed as a Cooper, there was a JOHN EDEL - Cooper - living in Phila. on Germantown Rd. early-on in the Phila. Directories - could JOHNs wife have been ANN ??
