I have a great great grandmother whose name was Amelia Schulte (married to Julius Beigang). Their daughter Wilhelmina Christina was born in 1868 in Cincinnati OH. She married Sebastian Waterman in 1887, and they are listed in the Newport KY (across the Ohio River from Cincinnati) city directory in the 1890s. My grandmother was born in July 1888 in Bellevue or Covington, KY, I believe. When Pearl Waterman married George Gabel, they lived in Bellevue, KY. I always heard the story from my grandmother of how her grandmother ran away from home with the gardener, that her father caught them in Bremmen, I believe, and tried to convince her to return home but she went on to America. I also think that she may be from a place called Otter (sp?), possibly in the SW part of Germany. I heard these stories as a child and I just don't remember the details now. However, we have pictures of her (and it was obviously a big family!), her parents, undoubtably her sisters and maybe her brothers - unfortunately most of them have no identification written on them except the photographer's name and locatioin. Some of these pictures of the Schultes say Columbus, IN; others indicate Nebraska, IN. But my mother's parents George & Pearl Gabel lived in the Cincinnati area; my grandmother had a Merle Norman studio in Bond Hill, where my mother attended school. I also know that they had a farm at one time NNE of Cincinnati; we acquired a copy of the deed/map of the property from the land records office in Cincinnati in about 1994. I think we have some connection, but how, I don't know at this point. I do know that my grandfather's brother Henry William Gabel was born in Hamiliton, OH April 2 1873; two siblings were born in Cincinnati, and the rest in Newport, KY.
