I'm researching a 2nd great grandfather August Friedrich Wilhelm Spiering born 30 Apr 1856 in Manitowoc, Wisconsin. His father was Carl Spiering. Carl was a Civil War Vet and moved his family to Traill Co. North Dakota for a while. Carl died back in Wisconsin 01 Dec 1903. Carl's Obituary (Carl Spierring) in the Manitowoc Citizen, 03 Dec 1903 mentions his sons living in Hillsboro North Dakota and in San Francisco. August F W Spiering lived in San Francisco, Cal. I found August living in SF from 1896-abt. 1910. Then, I can't find him. His daughter Gladys Lillian A Spiering married (to Albert Cavanaugh) in 1916 in Napa, Cal. August also had daughters May and Lottie (Charlotte?) and an adopted daughter Margaret as discovered in 1900 census. I think that his wife's name was Louisa Gillen. I'm hoping to find out more about this family. Where was August between 1870-1896 and after 1910? Where did he die?
