William Pagel was my Grandfather. He married Ester Roggow they had four children, Loretta, Edward, Myrtle & Adeline. Ester died when their oldest child was only 16. William (Bill's)father was John D.Pagel, His Grandfater was Christian & luise Pagel. William (Bill) raised his four children himself in Tonasket, WA 98841. Tonasket is 16 miles from Havillah, WA 98841 were William is buried. I am the daughter to his daughter Loretta. He never remarried. All the children live in Calif. I live in Omak,WA 98841. I have 3 children, Patrick (Rick)Roach, Randy D. Roach, & Rodney L. Laakso. I am divorced and use my last name Helberg. I was adopted by my Great Aunt, who was Aunt to my mother Loretta on the Roggow side. My other side of the Family is Roggow. I believe they all were from the same area MN. I was told William Pagel and Ester Roggow were second cousins. Ester's mother's maiden name was Schultz. I believe way back My Great Grandfather Christian who married Luise, she was a Schultz to. If you can clarify any of this I would be grateful.
