Don't know how much help I can be regards to your search, however, you raised some questions for me. My mother is Marie Worgul-Annis age 77 and her brother is William Worgul Jr age 79. They live here in Michigan. My grandparents were William Worgul Sr. (1897-1975) and Martha Lipka-Worgul. (1902-1996) The Worguls emigrated to Coalport about 1902 from Germany while Johann Lipka (grandma's dad) came over in 1910 to Coalport. The rest of the family came over in 1912. (from Germany) My great grandma was Maria Lipka-Bogemil. She had two sisters and I am trying to find out more about the third one. My mother said she doesn't know her great aunt's name however, indicates she married a man named Lulla and when he died she remarried a Gogola. Could this Freda you make reference to have as a step mother a woman whose maiden name was Bogemil then married a Lulla then a Gogola??? If so then I have IDed the sister of my great grandma Maria Bogemil-Lipka. Rralize it is a long shot. My mom recalls her dad William Sr. making reference to Henry Brackman as they were only four years apart in age. Any help you can give would be appreciated.

The inquries I posted were for my aunt in law who lives in another state. This week we spoke on the phone and I read her your message. As we spoke she started recalling things. She was reared in Rosebud, which is very close to Coalport. Her father worked as a minner for Hagerty Coal Minning Co. The company controlled the town, even the store. As a child my aunt knew part of the family lived in Michigan.
I learned Freda, my aunt's mother, had another brother named Rudy Gogola. Sisters Alma & Gurtie moved to CA before 1952. The names of the husbands are unknown, however one of them worked in Hollywood. Sister Margaret's married name was Price.
My aunt said the name Lipka sounded familiar and that perhaps the other names would sound familiar if I could pronounce them with a German dialect. I have a daughter in law that can help with the correct pronunciation. As we were talking my aunt recalled the given name of her maternal grandfather. She said it was Ralph. She had no knowledge of matermal grandmother having been married twice but Freda was 35 when my aunt was born and Freda's mother had died when Freda was a young adult. Thus my aunt never knew her grandmother. I think it quite possible it could have been a subject that was not discussed in the family.
The Gogola family in the Rosebud area are buried in Spangle Cemetery, Rosebud, Clearfield Co., PA. Maybe the first husband Mr. Lulla is burried there too? By the time Freda was grown her mother had died and her father married a lady with 8 children. Freda had only one, my aunt. Freda was 35 when my aunt was born, thus there are no other siblings to consult for information.
Freda and Herman are not listed in the SSDI but they would have registered. I recently learned with a name, vitals, proof of death and SSN of an individual you can obtain the SS-5 form from the Social Security Administration. This form is what is originally filled out by an individual when they want to obtain a SSN. Among the information is the individual's place of birth, father's full name, and mother's full name including maiden name. At present my aunt is searching for these numbers to acquire the above information. We learned a search can be done without the SSN but the chance of results is decreased. I will let you know what we find out.

Hi Larry,
We are still gathering information but the following has been found: The wife of Ralph Gogola was Wilhelmine Begomile. The name was hand written in an old German book. I would say Bogemil and Begomile were a match. What do you think?
You mentioned there were four Bogemil sisters. You named Maria Bogemil and now we have Wilhelmine. Do you have information about the other two sisters? Judy <>

Just found something that might be significant. Check out <>;
The ship Sanland arrived 18 Mar 1909. On the manifest are six men from Gelsencerher, Germany, which include: 1. Wilhelm Bogumil, 49y 2m, married. 2. Ernst Lalla, 26y 10m, married, 3. Johann Lipka, 30y 11m, married. I did not find the wives or children which is puzzling.
I would appreciated knowing what you think.
Cheers, Judy
