Bohnstengel and Hadel from Wallendorf to upstate New York

Posted: 1299431338000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Bohnstengel Hadel McCarthy
I'm researching my wife's great-grandparents and have pieced together that in around 1910, a Theresa (Bohnstengel) McCarthy (1892-1953) come to the US with the Hadel family (Joseph and Teresa's Aunt Anna and their children: Julius, Mary and Anna). Per the 1920 census they had a 4th child Frank who was born in PA in 1906 (yes, strange since younger siblings are listed as being born in Hungary, all before they arrived to the US).

I haven't been able to associate the Bohnstengel name with Wallendorf, nor find out Theresa's (and Anna's) maiden name. Any leads in this area would be helpful. It seems as if the databases don't reach far into the Hungarian regions.

I may plan a trip to the town also, and would appreciate any physical locations of libraries or cemeteries that could help put a solid lead on this research.
