Assel Family Genealogy Forum
Elizabeth Von Assel was my great grandmother. On 14 Oct. 1865, in Hochspeyer, she married my great grandfather, Heinrich Molle of Bad Durkeim, Pfalz. She may have been from Elmstein, Pfalz. Heinrich and Elizabeth had seven children, all of whom eventually emigrated to the U.S.A. where they settled in New York state, Philadelphia, PA., and Connecticut. Their names were Catharina, Heinrich, Carolina, Elizabeth, Johannes, unknown female, and my grandmother, Marie Anna. That much I know from my grandmother and the internet.
What I don't know is Elizabeth's parentage. There were, it seems, at least three Elizabeth Von Assels of about the same age, all living in the region near the time of Heinrich's and Elizabeth's marriage. There were also two Heinrich Molles, both born the same year, 1840, but mine was born on the 4th of April. I would be delighted if someone out there could lead me to the right Elizabeth or put me in touch with somone who could help me identify her. This has been a puzzlement to me for quite some time.
