Zabel Family Genealogy Forum
Still trying to get information on Dorathea Sophia Zabel. From records I have her immigrating in 1856-58 with her father and brothers and sisters. In the 1860 federal census for Oconomowoc, Waukeshe, Wisconmsin, a Frederick and Hanna L. Zabel are listed as neighbors of the John Sommerville family. That is Sophia's future husband. The census also lists a Christian Zabel, age 60, and an Augusta Zabel age 1. Christian Zabel, born abt 1800 is Sophia's father, Hanna Louise was Sophia's sister and Augusta was Sophia's daughter who was about 1 year old when Sophia and John were married in October 1860 in Summit Wisconsin. There never is any mention of Sophia from her immigration till her wedding date to John though. This mistery is driving me crazy. Any help on this would b e greatly appreciated.
