  of 823

I am searching for information regarding my ENGELS ancestors. Any connections and data appreciated.
My great grandfather, JACOB ("AUGUST", we think) ENGELS was born in Holland (we think, possibly Germany), and immigrated to New York City, where he was naturalized on August 25, 1884.
He married ELIZABETH (last name unknown).
They had at least one child, my grandfather, WILLIAM AUGUST ENGELS. Born April 1, 1874 in NYC. Died April 24, 1942, in New Haven, Connecticut.
William married: MINNIE RAUCHFUSS (I also have her parents (born in Prussia and Bavaria) and grandparents (born in Germany). She was born Feb 25, 1873, in NYC. Died August 2, 1922, in New Haven, CN.
William later remarried EMMA LEYKAUF.
Children of William and Minnie were:
William (my father)
Julia Louise
Herbert Otto
Charlotte Pearl
Florence Sophia
Mildred Jessie
