Re: Engel family of PA

In Reply to: Engel family of PA by Karen of 823

There is a possibility that all of the individuals that you mention with the surname "Engel" exist in my family tree, Karen. I'm still performing research, and some of my links are based on "assumptions" versus "hard" evidence.

Andreas and Dorthea (Aht) Engel and their six children arrived in New York from Germany in 1853. Members of the family are first listed as living in Pittsburgh during the 1870 census; I'm not sure where they were in the intervening years.

In my opinion, the Dorthea Engel that you mention and my great-great grandfather, Andrew, were brother and sister.

Here is a segment of my tree that might be of some interest:
