William Andrew Siegfried


William Andrew Siegfreid is my 2nd great grandfather.  He is the son of William Henry and Eve Greenzwig Siegfried.

William was born 21 October 1857 in Millport, Lower Towamensing Township, Carbon county, Pennsylvania and he died on 16 February 1927 in Sugarloaf Township, Luzerne county, Pennsylvania.

William married Emma Lydia Shellhammer in 1880.  They had the following children:

  1. Otto Siegfried
  2. William Edger Siegfried
  3. Arthur Siegfried -- I'm not sure if this is really another child or if he is Archibald...more things for my to do list!
  4. Archibald (Archie) Siegfried
  5. Cassia Siegfried
  6. Charles Crawford Siegfried
  7. Darwin Wesley Seigfreid (my great grandfather)
  8. Gertrude Siegfried
  9. Harry Siegfried
  10. Harty Titus Siegfried
  11. Hattie Siegfried
  12. Dorothy Siegfried
County Historical Maps of Pennsylvania (Harrisburg, Pa.: Archives Publishing Company of Pennsylvania, Incorporated, (donated) 1950). Digital version at FamilySearch Books Online - free.

I found William living in Luzerne county on the 1880 census in Black Creek, the 1900 census in Sugar Loaf, the 1910 census in Sugar Loaf and the 1920 census in Sugar Loaf.  I do now know when or why he moved 

I also know that William is buried in Red Rock Cemetery, Red Rock, Luzerne county, Pennsylvania.
