I am looking for information on Ernest Moeckel's family. I have the following:

Ernest Moeckel born 1838. He was born outside the USA (poss. Germany). He married an unknown woman who died 31 May 1921. Ernest and <unknown> had at least one daughter (though it is believed there were other children). Her name was Hilda. I have mention of an Ernest in Ashland Co I who was a Brewer. I don't know if this is the same man or not. I also have mention of an E. Moeckel in Buffalo Co., WI. As I don't know where in Wisconsin he was living at the time of Hilda's birth I don't know if this is him either. I also have a mention of a Ernest Moeckel, Sr who was a Luthern minister in the state of ND but don't think this is the same.

Hilda was born about 11 August 1865 in Wisconsin. She married August George. August George was born 31 Jan 1857 in Germany. August F and Hilda had a daughter named Irma George on 16 July 1882 in Ada Minnesota. Hilda died 3 July 1904 and is buried at Oakdale Cemetery, Crookston, MN. August F died in 1944 in Columbus, Ohio and is buried in Greenlawn Cemetery there. August started the first furniture store in Ada Minnesota.

Irma married Guy Grant Thornburg on 24 April 1907 in Crookston, Minnesota at her grand parent's house (the Moeckels).

Irma and Guy had two daughters: June and Betty Evangeline. June married Bill Lawson, Betty married Fred C Persinger. Betty and Fred had one daughter: Eileen June Persinger who married Larry Lee Newman. Eileen and Larry had two sons: Jeffrey and Wayne. Jeffrey is married to me. (Tracy).

Any information would be appreciated.
