Surnames: Karpel, Carpel
Looking for any information on this family:
Moritz Karpel, b. May 1845 in Hungary, immigrated 1892, died bef 1910 in Philadelphia, grocer.
wife Rachel (or Rosie) Berkowitz, b. April 1850 in Hungary, immigrated 1892, possibly died before 1910 in Philadelphia

After immigration, the spelling of the name fluctuated between Karpel and Carpel.

Children of Moritz and Rachel:
*Samuel, b. July 1871, immigrated 1888
*Solomon, b. 1872, immigrated 1892
*David, b. Mar 1878, immigrated 1892, died 28 Oct 1966 in Philadelphia. Wife Emma, children Raphael, Ellen and Rose
*Maria, b. May 1881, immigrated 1892
*Regina or Rose, b. 16 Nov 1883, immigrated 1892, died 16 Jan 1973. Contracted polio, left with a lame leg. Never married. Owned a record store.
*Joseph E, b. 5 Mar 1887, immigrated 1892, died 27 Apr 1973, wife Anna, son Stanley
*Ignatz, b. 1889, immigrated 1892, died before 1900?
Jacob, b. Feb 1892, immigrated 1892, died before 1900?

Rachel had 11 children total. In the 1900 census, 7 of the 11 were living, so I think there were 2 others not listed here.
