I am looking for information about Engelbert Langenhovel. He came from Germany and was born about 1885. His mother's name was Martha. His siblings names were Alden, Ada, Lizzie (Elizabeth?), Mertle and George. He married Hazel Parsley. They had two daughters, Lillian (born in 1908) and Hattie. Thanks.

Hi-

I am Engelbert's great grand daughter. My maiden name was Langenhovel. My dad is Carl Lincoln Langenhovel, son of George Howard Langenhovel, now deceased. My parents are still alive and living 3 miles away. There are not many Langenhovel's still living in the United States. The Langenhovel's that I know all had girls, so the name dies with my generation. My brother Patrick is alive and well, but also had girls. Please contact me if I or my parents might have any information you need.

Hi Sharon,
I hope we are talking about the same Engelbert Langenhovel because I haven't had much luck tracing the Langenhovel's in my family tree. My great grandfather, Engelbert Langenhovel, went by the name Bert. Since I wrote my first message I've found out that he was born 10/23/1882 and died 4/27/1969 in Merced County, Calif. I think his mother's name was Gorham. I know that Bert had a brother named George. In a California Death record I found a George Howard Langenhovel (1/27/1899 - 10/24/1981) and it lists his mother's maiden name as Hammond. In the same record there is an Engelbert Langenhovel (5/3/1860 - 1/14/1956). I'm wondering if he is Bert's father? I hope you and your parent's can help me figure out who's who in the family tree. I'd sure appreciate any information you have. It was exciting to get your reply to my message that I posted a whole year ago. I knew I shouldn't give up hope that there was someone out there that might be able to help! My email address is jbinky500@aol.com if you'd like to send an email. Thank you.

Classification: Query
I am seeking parents of Elizabeth (Lena) Langenhovel born ca 1888 in CA, who married Chester YATES.

In the 1880 census for CA are listed the following:
Augusta Langenhovel, 55, b. GER
Edwin Langenhovel, 17, b. CA
Engelbert Langenhovel, 55, b. GER
Engelbert Langenhovel, 20, b. CA
Mary Langenhovel age 22 b. CA

In CA death records online:
Elizabeth L. Yates born 6/21/1888 CA; mother Hammond; father Lagenhovel; died Stanislaus Co., age 97
Also listed with mother's name as Hammond:
Alden Henry Langenhovel b. 7/4/1893 b. CA
George Howard Langenhovel b. 1/27/1899 CA

Without a mother's maiden name is
Wilbur E. Langenhovel b. 3/3/1893 CA; (possible sibling)

Any information on an Elizabeth?

Thanks,

Revae
