Heinrich Deckel married Margaretha Wuest in Comal Co.,TX in 1855. Margaretha Wuest married William Mittel in 1858 in Gillespie Co.,TX She had three children by Deckel; Mary, Catherine, and Wendelin. She had more children by William Mittel, but I believe Wendelin Deckel is my stepfather's father. If this is the same Wendelin, he changed his last name to Degel for some reason. The oldest girl, Mary, died in 1861. She was said to have been 3 years old when she died. Her recent gravestone has Degel as her last name. Catherine went by different last maiden names; Deckel, Mittel,and Degel, not including her married last names. I'd like to find out for sure that this Wendelin Deckel is actually Wendelin Degel. He was born in 1857 and died in 1930. If anyone can help me, please know I'd appreciate it very much. Thanks.
