I never heard of your father. But I had always been told that all of the Schenkels in America first originated in Huntington, IN.

My grandmother's maiden name was Schenkel. She also lived in the Philadelphia area. Her brothers (that I know of) were Carl and William. Their parents came into America through Connecticut (at least that's what I've been told) around 1880 to 1890. I'm not sure of their names - I think his was Wilhelm though.

My grandfather, Ritner Chambers was born in Pittsburgh, PA. His grandmother's surname was Schenkel. His mother, Eleanor married Charles Chambers. I know very little except that they lived for a while in Economy, PA. If there is a connection, please let me know.

I'm the grandaughter of Elva Crippen Schenkel and Dewey Schenkel. Dewey's father was Gustavas Schenkel (b.2/19/1836, d. 1/2/1907, came to US in 1888?), who originally lived in Philadelphia. He was Episcopalian, and an organ builder. He built the organ in the Episcopal church in Philadelphia, and eventually moved to Chester, IL to work at an organ factory there.

His first wife, Lizzatta, died at the age of 34, leaving two children: Bessie and Armond, who went to live with her family upon her death, possibly in the Chicago area.

His second marriage, in 1896, from which I am a decendant, was to Kate McDonough [b. 9/21/1864]. She was the daughter of Lavena C. Forsee [b. 11/15/1824] and Thomas J McDonaugh [b/1/14/1843], who were married on 11/16/1843. She was previously married to Joseph Walster [10/23/1884].

Gustavas and Kate had one child, my grandfather, Dewey Schenkel (b. 1898). He married Elva Schenkel on 4/30/1927. She was the daughter of Elbert A Crippen (son of Nicholas, grandson of JJ Crippen)and Mary Belle Gideon (daughter of John A., grannddaughter of William, and great-grand daughter of James Gideon). Elva and Dewey had one child, my mother, Lois A. Schenkel.
