John Engel, born about 1820 in Bavaria, Germany was a merchant and a tailor. His wife's name is unknown at this time, but they had many children including William, George, John, Joseph, Josephine, Cecelia, Lucy, Elizabeth, and Francis (born 1853). Francis Engel married Mary Nolte probably in Elizabeth, New Jersey. If anyone has any info on this family, especially the ancestors of John, I would be greatly appreciative to learn it.
