Junghans family in Vincennes, Indiana

This photo was taken probably in the fall of 1911.

Front row: Otto Sr (or possibly brother Carl or Emil Yunghans) holding Lydia Junghans, and possibly wife Hulda*, unsure of the two women and boy in the middle and man on the right *

Back row: Otto Jr and Ella Junghans

*As I have either no or limited photos of the Yunghans family, it's difficult to determine everyone in the photo.

Gilbert Junghans

Otto and Ella Junghans' third and last child was born September 19, 1915. By the time Gilbert was born, the family had moved back to Mequon, Wisconsin.

Here is a photo of the Junghans' family about 1916.
Starting from the left:

Sitting on the car: unknown man

Standing: John Dvonik, possibly Martha Dvonik and son, Walter Dvonik.

Standing in the center: Ella Junghans holding Gilbert, Lydia, Gerhardt and father Otto Jr.

Sitting on the far right: Possibly Otto Junghans Sr

Very neat car.

Gerhardt Junghans

Otto and Ella Junghans' second child, Gerhardt was born September 19, 1912 in Vincennes, Indiana.

I do not have a photo of Gerhardt in Vincennes, but the photo above is of the house that Otto Jr, wife Ella, and their children Lydia and Gerhardt lived in during their short time in Vincennes.

Lydia Junghans

Otto and Hulda Junghans' first grandchild was Lydia, born July 3, 1911 in Mequon Illinois to Otto Jr and Ella Junghans.

Sometime after Lydia was born, the family moved for a time to Vincennes, Indiana where Otto Jr's uncles Emil and Carl Yunghans were residing.

Here is a photo of Lydia taken in Vincennes, probably sometime in 1912.

1910 US Federal Census - William Junghans

I believe I found the 1910 Census record for Paul Junghans' eldest son, William.

It appears William was living in Sumner, Jefferson County, Wisconsin. Sumner is approximately 15 minutes southwest of Fort Atkinson, where the rest of the Junghans family would eventually be moving in 1914.

According to the census record, William was living and working on a farm.

I've not been able to locate a census record for William's younger brother Carl, so I do not know where he was living during the 1910 census.

This completes the 1910 US census records for the Junghans (Wisconsin) and Yunghans (Indiana and Ohio) families.

1910 US Federal Census - Otto Yunghans

In 1910, Emil Yunghans' third child, Otto was living with wife Clara and sons Paul, Wilfred and Norman on East 105th Street in Cleveland, Ohio.

Otto was the first of Emil and Julia Yunghans' children to leave Vincennes, Indiana. Also, unlike his older brothers, Julius and Henry, who followed their father into the cigar making business, Otto was a school teacher.

1910 US Federal Census - Henry Yunghans

In 1910, Emil Junghans' second eldest child, Henry was living with wife Anna and daughters Letha and Ermine in Vincennes, Indiana.

It looks like the Yunghans family were living on North 11th Street.

Like his older brother Julius, Henry was a cigar maker.

1910 US Federal Census - Julius Yunghans

Continuing with the 1910 US Census, Emil Yunghans' eldest son, Julius was living with wife Minnie, daughter Marie and son Arthur at apparently the same location as they were living in 1900: on Broadway Street in Vincennes, Indiana.

Julius was a cigar maker; most likely at his father's factory.

1900 US Federal Census - Julius Yunghans

I have posted all the 1900 US Census records for 3 of the 4 Junghans brothers, Emil, Paul and Otto. Carl's census record I've been unable to locate; I do know he did not marry Hannah Kerlifofaky until 1905 in Indiana, but not sure of his whereabouts in 1900.

Of the next generation of Junghans (or Yunghans), only Emil's eldest son, Julius had moved out on his own and started a family.

In 1900, Julius, wife Minnie and their newborn daughter Marie were living on Broadway Street in Vincennes, Indiana.

1910 US Federal Census - Paul Junghans

In 1910, the youngest of the Junghans' brothers, Paul, lived with wife Wilhelminia, and sons Paul Jr and Walter (my grandfather) at their farm in Pine Valley, Wisconsin.

1910 US Federal Census - Otto Junghans

In 1910, the 2nd youngest Junghans brother, Otto, continued to live on the farm in Mequon, Wisconsin. Also residing at the farm were Otto's wife, Hulda, their children Otto Jr and Martha and Otto Jr's wife Ella.

The census record also indicates a niece by the name of Martha, which must be from Hulda's side of the family, unless the census taker made an error and that entry belongs to the household next to Otto and Hulda's.

1910 US Federal Census - Carl Yunghans

In 1910, Carl Junghans and wife Hannah were also living in Vincennes, Indiana. Carl and Hannah had married a years earlier, in 1905. I have yet to locate the 1900 US Census for Carl.

It is hard to read the year of immigration, but according to the 1920 Census (which I'll post later) he immigrated to the United States in 1882.

Of the 4 Junghans brothers, Carl did not have any children, and I'm not aware that he had been married previously, so that portion of the family tree ends with him.

1910 US Federal Census - Emil Junghans

The 1910 US Federal Census was the first that I've been able to locate the records for all 4 of the Junghans' brothers: Emil, Carl, Otto and Paul.

In 1910 Emil and wife Julia lived with 7 of their 10 surviving children: Alvin, Ernest, Elizabeth, Frederick, Albert, Frank and Hulda.

Emil Yunghans (Junghans) and family were living in Vincennes, Indiana during the 1910 Census.

1905 Wisconsin Census - Otto Junghans

In 1905, Wisconsin had a 2nd mid-decade census. Otto Junghans and wife Hulda lived with their two children, Otto Jr and Martha on their farm in Mequon, Wisconsin.

Also living with them was Martha's father, Ehrenfield Hahmann (though the census record didn't list the last name, leading one to believe his last name was Junghans) and a 12 year old named Lydia.

I am not sure whether Lydia was a family member since a last name wasn't used for her either. The document indicates Lydia was born in Michigan and as far as I know, no Junghans' ever lived in Michigan so I'm inclined to believe she was a relative of Hulda or possibly a boarder.
