Rosalie Barcia was my great-grandmother,my father's grandmother. His mother was Jenny Rodosta Bartels,not Barthel, so that misspelling should be corrected. Jenny was married to Joseph Charles Bartels.They had 2 children, Louis Ishmael Bartels and Rosemary Bartels Chryssoverges.I would be able to provide more info, if you are interested and part of this family line.
