I received information via e-mail today from my cousin Sherry in TN who has done some extensive research on her family & also part of my father's family - HOCHADEL.
My great grandparent, immigrated from Germany. Where they landed in the US - I have no idea. When they arrived here it was said they dropped the "VON" part of the Hochadel name. Reading the mesaages & names on the posting board brings up faint memories of some discussions & various names.
My great grandfather's name was Pete or Peter, & I think was married to Sarah.
My grandfather was Joseph Hochadel, (deceased before I was born,) was married to Catherine. He had brothers and sisters, I can't remember all the names but sisters were Sarah, Lena, Mary, & Elizabeth. I believe a brother was killed in war. If memory is correct, there were 8 children in all.
My aunts & uncles - Joseph & Catherine's children were:
Joseph, William Francis, James Reynolds (my dad), Charles Milton (died in WWII,) Robert and Jane.
All of the family members mentioned above settled in, Clark County, Indiana. I noticed on the board a mention of a Sarah being married in Clark County, KY. It could have been Clark County, IN instead of KY.
All of the above family is now deceased, except for William (Bill) Hochadel. He to is in ailing health & is 81.
I would very much like to get information since most of the elder generation on my dads side of the family appear to be deceased or unknown.
I do know there are Hochadel's in OH & NY & FL. None seem to have information that connect my dad's side of the family to them. There are many Hochadel cousins & their siblings/children remaining in the IN & KY area. Any information you have, would be appreciated.
