THE HÄNFLER FAMILY

Minnie HÄNFLER (with variants including Henfler, Hamfler, and Hemfler) is my second greatgrandmother. She was born in Germany and married Herman LEPPIN in Chicago, Cook, Illinois. I previously discovered a possible sister, Augusta HÄNFLER, who married Philipp Zimmermann, and just days ago confirmed my suspicion further with a baptism record for Augusta and Philipp's daughter naming Minnie Leppin as a witness. Clues in other church records suggest that Minnie may have had a brother, Carl HÄNFLER, and that her parents might have been Carl HÄNFLER and August --?--. Further research is needed to prove/disprove these connections. My direct line is in red.
