William Albert Pfister: b. 1/14/1884, Philadelphia, PA

Want to learn about ancestors of my grandfather, William Albert Pfister, born in Philadelphia, PA, on January 14, 1884, and died in Philadelphia on November 8, 1960, at St. Agnes Hospital. He served in the US Navy and fought in the Spanish American War. He married Edna Mary Mileham and had three children: Eugene Albert Pfister (b. March 17, 1912; d. 1988), William Edgar Pfister (my father, b. June 14, 1915), and Mildred Elizabeth (b. September 28, 1920; d. May 13, 1973.

William Albert's father was John Pfister, who was born in Switzerland and came to the US as a child, probably to PA. John died February, 1884, I think. John was married (1867-8) to Katheryn Bergen (Burgen?), who came to the US from Baden, Switzerland, when she was two years old. They had six children: Elizabeth (b. 1869), Mary (b. 1873), John (b. 1875), twins Mae and Charlie (b. 1881), and William Albert.

Thanks for any leads you can give me to more information about John and Katheryn and their ancestors.
