Sympathy Saturday – Joseph Hoeninghausen


Joseph Hoeninghausen died September 22, 1899 in Indian River, Cheboygan, Michigan, and he was the widow of Susanna Kessler who died years earlier in 1881.  The informant does not know his birthdate or his mother’s name… just his father’s name and that he was born in Germany.  Joseph and Susanna were married in Germany around 1846 and made their way to the United States in 1852.   The family shows up in the 1860 census in Detroit, Michigan and it appears that Joseph held a couple different jobs as a general laborer and as a collector.  Their son, Theodore, fought in the Civil War.
