I am looking for any relatives to this man. He was born in Germany in 1863. He was married in Germany to Wilhelmina Stapel in 1889 and they immediately set off for America. The moved to Cleveland, OH until about 1893. They then moved to Hambden, Geauga Co., OH. On his death certificate, it does not mention his father's or mother's name. In his obit, it mentions that he still has two living sisters in Germany named Emelia and Louise. He died in 1923 in Fairport Harbor, Lake Co., OH.

His children were:
John August
William Paul
Louise Marie
Elsie Gertrude
Lillian Maxine
Unknown Child (died early in life)

If you can help find any ancestors, it would be of great help.

My Wilhelm Sturm was listed as a tailor in 1889 when he came over to America. He married a Wilhelmina Stapel in Germany right before they came over. They had 9 children.

I'm still looking for the parents of Wilhelm (William) F. Sturm born abt 1863. I have multiple sources that conflict on birth year (1860, 1862, 1863). One source states he was born in Mecklenburg, Germany another states Berlin, Germany.
He married Wilhelmina Caroline Auguste Stapel (b: 28 Jul 1868, Wolfshagen, ,Brandenburg, Germany)
In his obit in 1923 it states that he had two sisters still living in Germany, Louise and Emelia.

If anyone has a family with siblings named Wilhelm, Louise and Emelia all born around the 1850-1870s in Germany, please contact me.
