Henry was married to Eliza in Germany sometime before 1881. My grandmother, Emma Louise Wagner, said both her parents were born in Hassen Castle, Germany. I have no documents to verify this. Grandma said her father was a very slender man and looked very frail, however he was far from frail. 1900 Census shows that Henry immigrated to the United States in 1885. Grandma once told me that her father had been in the U.S. a year or so working and saving money before her mother and siblings came here from Germany. She also said that the family left Germany and all their relatives behind, because her father who was in the German Army was upset at how things were going under the rule of the new Kaiser.
