Today I went for a trip to the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh Genealogy Department
I was again perusing the microfilms looking for “my people.” Katharina Sperl’s first husband Anton died of Typhoid Fever in 1899.
In the 1900 census she was a widow and in 1910 she was married to Joseph Nosseck. I was looking for Joseph and Katharine’s marriage date and any other information.
My friend/cousin Julie told me that she had thought he was married two times before he married Katharina. I have to write and ask her why she had thought that…..
The unusual thing was in the microfilmed records I found his marriage to Katie Stross in 1888 and again to Katie Stross in 1896. When I looked for one of them it had a marriage of John Nosseck to another woman. I am thinking that John might be Josephs brother. I do not know if he married Katie, divorced and married her again or the records are in error.
What I did find was Joseph’s marriage to Katharine Sperl, 15 February 1904. On another record I have from a death look up is the death of Edward Nosseck in 1901. Edward was a baby who died from “brain fever.” Meningitis???
In 1901 Katie was still alive and by 1904 Joseph had remarried, so her death was sometime in those three years. I have to search Stross on Ancestry. Each answer begets another question.
I should have named my blog,
Each Answer Begets Another Question.
