Looking for information on Joseph Veierstahler (Americanized version of Surname, GUESSING it was spelled FUERSTAHLER in German).

We understand he was born in either in Germany or Hungary and married a Katherine Mayer (either in Germany or Hungary). The birthdate of Katherine (which the family here seems sure of) is January 6, 1876.. but that's all they are sure of except her death date here in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Im told his first wife died in a house fire in Yaganak, Hungary, children (survived?)were Peter, Elizabeth and Margaret.

It is believed Joseph immigrated to the United States approx. 1900-1910 without his wife Katherine. Katherine came later with two children, Theresa and Joeseph.

They settled in Wisconsin around 1911.

I really wish I had more information to impart in my querey, any leads would help.. any contact with living relatives would be most welcome!

Joseph and Katherine were my Great-Grandparents.
