Christian Lueckel - Dunbar, Pennsylvania

  of 6

I am tracing my BAILES line and have come cross Christian LUECKEL. My BAILES' line came up from VA (WVA) into Dunbar, Fayette County, PA.

Christian was the first husband to my gg-grandmother. Here is all of the information I have on him . . . .

Christian LUECKEL, b:June 1840, d:16 Dec 1872
Christian is buried at Franklin Cemetery in Dunbar. I have a picture of his headstone and can email it to anyone interested.

m:1867 to Mary Jane MARTIN also of Dunbar,PA.

Christian served in the Civil War as a PVT in the Union army, Pvt Co. E 140th PA Inf.
He enlisted 21 Aug 1862-Discharged 25 Jun 1865 - disability contacted consumption (t.b.).

Christian and Mary Jane had two children:
1.Nancy Ellen b:Jun 1868, d:1925
2.Alexander b:1870, d:6 nov 1894

I have nothing more after this. I see LUECKEL is a German name. I do not know yet if he immigrated here to the states or did his parents or others. ANY info on him would be appreciated. I see the name LUECKEL is not very common. I am hoping this helps my search for where Christian came from.

I will be in the Dunbar, Fayette County, PA area in Nov of '98. If my contunied research comes up with anything then I'll post in this forum. I'll be getting his military record then and hopefully a marriage license or obit.

Please contact me if anyone feels we could have a match.
Thank you.
