Mr. and Mrs. John Pfeil
In the March 31, 1906 issue of the Sandusky Register, is an obituary for John Pfeil. The article reported that Mr. Pfeil was born in Kurhessen, Germany on October 7, 1825, and came to Sandusky in 1866. "He was a tailor by trade and was one of the city's best known German residents." His wife, Martha, had passed away in 1893. He was survived by three daughters, Mrs. Charles Pelz, Mrs. William Dies, and Mrs. Henry Beatty; and four sons, Conrad, Paul, Jacob, and Henry.
Mr. and Mrs. Pfeil had made their home at 510 Neil Street in Sandusky. They are buried in Sandusky's Oakland Cemetery. (While the tombstone for John Pfeil has the year 1905 as his year of death, the obituary from the local newspaper indicates that the year he died was 1906.)
