Augusta Fredericka RISTAU WOCKENFUSS of Germany and Maryland
Augusta is the wife of another ancestor I'm searching, Friedrich William WOCKENFUSS. She was born August 13, 1849 in Germany. She married Friedrich in 1874 after the death of his first wife. According to my records, her father is named Frederck (or Frederick?) RISTAU, but I don't have any information on him, other than that he was born in Germany. Don't even know his wife's name.
Augusta and Friedrich had seven children, whom I've already written about in my journal about Friedrich. According to family records, on May 26, 1883, Augusta took her three children (at the time) - Helen Augusta (7 @ the time), Philemon (5 yrs), and Paul (11 months) - and the only surviving son from Friedrich's first marriage, Gustav Ernst (15), to America. Friedrich had gone across eight months before to get a job and find a home for his family. After reaching America, they had William Frederick, Carl Henry, Louis Martin and Edward John Conrad.
I'm looking for Augusta's ancestors as well as Friedrich's.
