In Reply to: TILLIE & ROSABELLE SPAETH - Phila., PA by Ernestine L. Urken of 264

The following census record told me Matilda "Tillie's" husband--Isaac SPAETH
and also her parents, Solomon and Sadie LEVY

SPAETH, Harry I., gr-son, w, m, apr 1896, 4 S, Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania, North Carolina.

With the information regarding Isaac SPAETH, knowing he was born in PA, I then went farther back to 1870 to see what SPAETHs were in Philadelphia. I came up with two hits, one was Adolph SPAETH. I already knew him to be a Lutheran minister and father of among others, Sigmund SPAETH, the famous musicologist. Secondly, there was a Henry SPAETH.
Voila! and here's that census enumeration.

1870 US Census 31st District, Philadelphia, Philadelphia co, PA
3 June 1870

SPAETH, Henry 41, m, w, Dealer, Bavaria
SPAETH, Jeanette, 40, f, w, keeping house, HesseDarmstadt
SPAETH, Rachel, 12, f, w, Pennsylvania
new page
SPAETH, Phillip, 12, m, w, Pennsylvania
SPAETH, Isaack, 6, m, w, Pennsylvania

So, Grandmother Rachel LOEB (nee SPAETH) was sister in law to Matilda SPAETH (nee LEVY) and aunt to Rosabel and Harry SPAETH. And you now know for whom Harry was probably named, none other than his grandfather Henry SPAETH.
