Looking for Information on George Kendel who was born in 1872 in Austria .. First settled in North Dakota ( aprox 1900 ) moved to Morden Mb area in or around 1903 .. Married Julia Autinberg ( not sure of spelling of last name ) .. Three sons born being Bert / Fred / and Edward .. Julia passed away right after the birth of Edward .. ( aprox 1909 ) .. George then married Pauline Gibbons .. who was suppose to be from Warren Minn .. four more sons were born .. being Phillip , Adolf , William , and Henry .. The family then moved to a homestead at Ashern Mb ( aprox 1916 ) ..In 1928 they again moved back to Domain Mb .. In 1938 Pauline passed away there .. and is buried there as well .. George and the boys then moved to Marquette Mb .. George passed away in 1957 .. and the boys now have all passed on .. So theres nobody left to ask questions ..
I was informed that when George came to this country .. he came with two brothers and one sister .. One brothers name was Jacob .. the others I don't have .. They sister didn't hang around Manitoba for very long .. as she moved to Toronto Ontario .. Over the years this family went every direction
I am the grandson of George and Pauline Kendel .. but have very little Information about them .. Our spelling of the last name was changed to Kendall .. by a school teacher .. who didn't know the proper spelling when the boys started school .. and it's been that way ever since .. My father was Phillip who passed away in 1993 .. I was informed years ago by my father that he was raised by the old German rule .. where kids were seen , and never asked questions .. This is why there isn't much information about this family today .. ( a very stupid rule I would have to say ) ..
I do know my father had cousins in North Dakota .. as we visited with them .. they too have all passed on .. Any information would be very helpful .. as I have started a family history about this family .. My uncles I knew quite well .. But the rest I haven't a clue .. Thank You ... Terry Kendall
