Tombstone Tuesday: Fred and Ella Jaeger

1893 – 1961
1898 – 1956

Fred was born 27 Dec 1893, Zwittan, Czechoslovakia. He immigrated to the United States through Canada. He entered the US in Port Huron, MI on 20 Sep 1913. Five years later he married  Ella Martha Marie Jonas from Morton Grove, IL on 26 Nov 1918, in Chicago, IL. Ella was the first generation to be born in America, (she was 1 of 12 children). Both of her parents immigrated to the States from Germany.

Fred and Ella raised their family in Chicago, IL. They had four girls together: Ruth (23 Feb 1916), Ida (1 Jan 1919), Dorothy (24 Feb 1920)  and Irene (31 Oct 1923).

Fred and Ella are my paternal Great Grandparents. There is still more research that needs to be completed on this line.
