Andrew Engler Homestead
Andreas I. Engler - Margaretha Loess

In 1852 my great grandfather Andrew Engler married & moved to Garnavillo where he lived for two years before moving to the Cascade-Worthington, IA (Dubuque co.) area where he lived the remainder of his life.  When Andrew was in Garnavillo, he lived with John S. Engler. John's daughters married into the Anderson, Tonner and Troester families, some of who still live in Clayton Co. John's son, Charles, was a noted hardware store proprietor in Garnavillo. My website explains the Garnavillo connection & gives additional information on the Engler family. I am particularly interested in finding out who the parents of John and Andrew were.
