Just updating/correcting info I previously posted. Alexander Wambold (Sr)was born 9 June 1887 in Wiesenmueller, Samara, Russia. He immigrated to the US in 29 Jan 1912 (aboard the SS Canada from Liverpool, England to Portland, ME). His wife (Maria Kathatrina Jung) and eldest son (Alexander Wambold(t) Jr) arrived in NY on the SS Campania on 2 Aug 1913. Alex Sr & Maria were married in Oshkosh, WI on 13 Aug 1913. Marriage was witnessed by Georg & Friedrich Wambold (realatives I assume). Alex Sr & Maria (later called Mary)had a 2nd son, Frederick while in Oshkosh, then moved to Detroit, MI around 1915. Alexander Sr had also lived in Detroit before Maria & Alexander Jr came to the US. In Detroit they had 2 more children, August and Rose. I believe Rose's married name was Lutfey or Luftey. Alexander (Jr) was born on 26 Aug 1912. He is listed as Alexander Yung (or Jung) on his immigartion documents. He and his mom, Maria travelled from Libau to Liverpool to NY. His nearest living relative in Russia was listed as his maternal grandmother, Eva Yung in Wiesenmueller. Alexander Jr married Madeline Capelle in 1935. They had a son, James. Alex Jr married Anna D Hanson in 1954 (civil)/1955 (church), with whom he had a son,Richard (my father).I believe there was another very short marriage in between Madeline & Anna.
