Hi I am looking for any information in regards to an Edward Kugelman & his family. I have obtained very conflicting information and I would like to iron out what is fact. I know that he lived in Chicago and was a fire department captain, and that he was born in Chicago around 1871.
I cannot find any records to show who his parents were or when they came to the US.
He was married to Sophie Fauerbach and she died in 1959. They had two daughters: Edna Allison and Margaret(Marguerite)Francis.
I know that Sophie was born in New York around 1874-1876 & her parents were both born in Germany.
I have been unable to locate any information on her or her family.
Also Edward's family was from Germany but I have been unable to locate any records of their families coming to the U.S. or his parents place & date of death.
If anyone knows anything or has any further information on Edward or Sophie, please post.
I have seen that there is a long line of people with the last name Kugelman working in the CFD and living in Chicago,
I am curious if anyone is related to Edward??
