My Seefeldt Family
This Seefeldt is my father's father Charles' family. Charles Frederick
William Seefeldt, who was married to Mary Sell. I have two blood lines
with this surname, one on my father's mother Mary's side and one on his
father Charles' side. Just a bit confusing. Grandma Mary was born Mary
Sell, but her mother was Emilie Seefeldt Sell.
Charles along with his parents landed in NY but made their home in Ontario Canada. After spending time in a few places, they settled in Berlin, Ontario, later to be renames Kitchener, Ontario. Charles moved westward when he was in his late teens. Spent one winter in Montana, too cold he said, so he headed further west the next year and eventually made his hom on Five Mile Prairie, Spokane, Washington where he was naturalized in 1900 as a citizen of the US.
Charles and Mary were married Jan 29, 1903 in Spokane Washington, and
it was an arranged marriage, which lasted 53 years. They were the happy
parents of my father, Fernando Clarence, Milton Charles, Delmer, who died
young, Charles William and one daughter, Violet Irene.
