Re: Etzel's In Oregon

In Reply to: Etzel's In Oregon by Cliff Etzel of 82

My name is Doug Etzel, my father is Spencer, and his father is "Ig" (Ignacious) Etzel. Ig lived outside of Salem near Sublimity, where he farmed and worked as a cook. Ig had a large number of brothers and sisters (I think as many as 8 or 10). Its very likley that Clifford Etzel and Ig Etzel were related. I believe that Ig's father (my Great Grandfather) immigrated from Germany, but I don't have details. Ig's youngest brother Hillary still lives in the Salem area where he had an insurance office for many years. I have heard that his son, Kevin, has done some research on the Etzel family in Oregon.
