I'm posting this a second time because I forgot to add my new email address. firstname.lastname@example.org
I found this posting on Roots Web so I though I would take a chance and answer it. I have just started to look into the name Pupel. My husband GG Grandparents were Paul & Catherine (Behrendt) Scheffs and they were born in Germany. Paul died there but Catherine came with her family to Wilkes Barre, Pa. Paul and Catherine had several children among them being Mary Scheffs. Catharine’s Obituary states “The funeral of Mrs. Catherine Scheffs will be held on Saturday morning at 9 o’clock from the home of her daughter, Mrs. John Pupel of 95 Hickory Street”. In the 1910 census I find John & Mary living in Wilkes Barre with the following children: Joseph (age 19 b. Germany). Elizabeth M (age 14 b. Pa) and Katherine J (Age 10 b. Pa). This family also includes Katherine Scheffs (Schepp), (Mother-in-law).
Do you think we may have a match? It looks like the Pupel family in Wilkes Barre was not very large. I hope this helps you.
Thank you for your time.
Catherine (Harman) Scheff
