Searching for any information pertaining to Bernhard Barthel and his wife Johanna Kaufman. Estimate both were born in Germany in the mid 1830's. They were the parents of four children, all of whom were also born in Germany: Gustave (b:1858), Oscar (b: 1859), Rosa (b: 1861), and Frank (b: 1869). The 1880 census for Marion County, Indiana, indicates seven children were born to the marriage but only four survived. Gustav and Oscar were both store owners, one owned a grocery/meat market, and the other owned a family-style saloon. If anyone has any information or a family connection with Barthels in Marion County, Indiana, I would love to hear from you.
