Charles Wessel - Woodfield Co., IL; Lancaster Co., NE; Alliance, NE

I'm doing some research on my husband's side of the family. We've been able to trace his ancestry back to Charles Wessel, who emigrated from Prussia to Burlington, Iowa, to Woodfield Co., Illinois, and then to Lancaster County, Nebraska. He has an entry in the Biographical Album of Lancaster County.

According to the sketch, he married Henrietta Wittstruck, also of Germany, while in Illinois. They moved to Lancaster Co., NE, but Charles' father and siblings remained in Woodfield Co.

If anyone has information on Charles' parents, siblings, or wife, please let me know.

I'd also be grateful for information regarding descendants: Charles F. (d. 1951 in Alliance, NE) and his son Virgil (1897-1981). I have only the most basic information regarding them and am looking to expand the knowledge. Also, I'm having difficulty tracing Charles F.'s wife, Mattie Wessel. I think she may have been born Martha Mae Wolf, but I can't confirm this.

Any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
