looking for family of KATHERINE HAGEN, JOHN RIEGEL

Journal by FrancisAnn

Catherine and John Riegel were my Great Grandparents. I have lots of info on John, but Catherine Hagen seems lost in time until she married John. They had two children, Cecilia and Lenora. Cecilia married Charles Sumner and had two children, Gwendolyn and Kenneth.
I am Gwendolyn's daughter. Lenora married Russell Hulan and as far as I know had two children, Richard and Joann.
Catherine was buried at Memorial Park Cemetary in St. Louis, Missouri, 11-03-1934 as Mary Margret Catherine Riegel. John followed her on 2-6-1946.
I'm looking for Lenora's family because mine are all gone. I'm hoping to learn Catherine's Parents name and what county they came from in Ireland. My Grandmother made a HUGE deal of telling me that her mother's family dropped the "O" from their name either just before or just after arrival in America. All Census records 1910-1930 say that her parents were born in Ireland. Help, researching the mothers of my family is VERRRRRY important to me.

A bit of help from me, register as a new user of RootsChat. Surely rootschatters should be able to dig up something for you.

And check out The Surname Navigator it's a really powerful genie search engine scanning. Click on a country from the drop down list, type in say each and every of these surnames you are researching, then click on submit. About 10 window boxes will open up, be patient if you have dial-up internet, somtimes it is worth the wait.

Ever seen RootsWeb before? Scroll down to RootsWeb World Connect Project - Search Family Trees. When you click on this you should then see a search table box. Check all these surnames also. Enter brief information in the search box, try surname first, then try surname and country.
