My gg-grandfather came to US in mid 1800's from Wertemberg (sp?) We do not know the exact year. He married Anna Zant, my gg-grandmother, who came to this country from Bavaria. They married in Mobile, Al Oct 29, 1859 and had 3 children, Catherine, Joseph and John. Joseph was my g-grandfather who married a Cooper. They lived in Bon Secour, Al where they raised their children. Their son, Joseph Edward was my grandfather. I have a family member who is doing research of the family and he says their are many Wenzels. Some settled in Texas, however we do not believe this is our line. There is a Website by Wenzel Associates in Texas if you think they could help. Good luck and let me know if you see a connection.
