Find A Grave Memorial# 99625955
I live in Buffalo NY and had a high school friend named Woeppel. Recently I saw the grave site for her mother & father and was looking into the other family members buried in local graves. In one collection of lot maps on film I discovered a Last Will and Testament attached to the lot map for Ignatz Woeppel where he left $2,000 to his niece Mary Woeppel (now Sister M. Aloysia in Newark New Jersey). The other information in the will describing her matches up except the fathers name is Ludwig, not John. Ignatz's other brothers named in the will are Anton & Ernest. At the time of the will (May 10, 1915) Mary's brother Adolph and sister Franciska Hoeninger were still living in Dittigheim.
At this time also, Ludwig was deceased. I may try to find him and if I do will link the memorials, but thought I would check. I have found some amazing coincidences in historical research.
