"... Augusta Sorgel who married Martin Bellinghausen,a civil war veteran, after her husband Richard Sorgel died of pneumonia in Portage,Wi around 1861 ..."

BTW - there was a Martin "Bellenhausen" in Milwaukee who some how heard about the deceased veteran Martin "Bellinghausen" in Portage and applied for his pension benefits. He was caught out and the story was written up in July 1877 in the local German papers, but probably in the English language papers too.
