I am searching for information on the John Fabel family. John Fabel came from germany in 1902 with his wife Wilhelmina and their son Alfred. By 1910 Wilhelmina and Alfred were in Canada and John had remarried to Carrie Beltmann a widow with 5 children: Dora, Clara, Edwin, Alvina and Carl. JOhn and Carrie had two girls: Helen b. 1910 and Marcella b. 1913. John and Carrie lived in Wadena Village Minnesota. John died and Carrie was a widow still living in Wadena village under the name Beltmann. The only children still at home at this time were Carl, Helen and Marcella.
Any information on this family please contact me

I am not familiar with John Fabel. My grandfather Richard Fabel came from Magdeburg Germany. He had a brother named Albert, who was lost travelling to America in the early 1900's. If this coincides with any of your searches, please advise.

I do not know if John had any brothers. I know he came from Germany in 1902. by the passanger list it looks like his last residence was Hanover Germany. I hope this helps. I do not know much about this family or him.

Surnames: Fabel, Broman, Beltman
My step-uncle Alfred lived, when I knew him as a child (me) in/near Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada. He was a wheat farmer; apparently, he later lost his fortune in post-retirement speculation. He was married to Mary ...; as far as I know, they did not have any children.

I knew my grandma (Caroline) as Grandma Beltman, not Caroline Fabel. At the time my parents married (see next paragraph), John Fabel was living in International Falls, MN, and apparently working as a fishing guide. According to my mother, he was essentially destitute, and he passed away shortly after 1933. I had always heard that, in Germany and maybe after he came to North America, he was trained and worked as a tailor. (I have a German pattern book of his, passed down from my mother.)

My mother was Marcella Fabel, married to Elmer Broman of Milaca, MN, in 1933. Her sister, Helen, was married to Milo POeterson, and they lived in Roseau, MN. She died sometime before my mother who passed away in 2003(?).

I am one of five Broman children: Robert, Kenneth, Charles, Joan Carrie (named after grandma Caroline), and Victoria.

I was intersted in Albert Fabel.
My grandfather Richard Michael Fabel was from Magdeburg Germany and came to America after his brother Albert left by boat to the U.S. He was never heard from and my grandfather searched for years. Does your Alfred have ties to this area of Germany?
Thank you

I'm sorry but I have no other information about Alfred Fabel than I gave in my earlier reply.
