Ray - thanks for the reply. I have had some luck with the research since my last post and have scans of obits, the census, death records and marriage license index. Let me know if you would like me to send them. I have a 1904 Philadelphia Ledger obit for Christian Sr. Looks like Christian had 13 children, at least 3 of them dying in infancy.
Would love to have a copy of the citizenship papers - my sister lives in Europe and is anxious for more info as she is planning a trip to Baden for research.
Did Ferdinand (who married a Summerfied in 1909 I believe) stay in Philadelphia? I have a WWII draft registration for a Ferdinand (how many could there be?) living on Emerald Street.
