I called my mother to see if she remembers a Carl Baidel. She was born and raised in Toledo. She is now 83. Her grandmother was Julia Baidel--one of seven children born to Augustus Baidel and Priscilla Bailey. They were raised in Michigan but some migrated to Toledo and the surrounding area. Other siblings were: Emmaline, Dora, Marg, William (Bill), Charles (Charlie) and John. We don't know anything about John Baidel. He was the youngest sibling. Perhaps he is a direct ancestor to you. Their father Augustus immigrated from Prussia. We do not have any knowledge of his siblings or parents. Do you know who your grandfather's parents were?
