As per his death certificate, his father's name was Friederich.

There is a discrepancy as to Albert's birth year. The 1900 Federal Census says 1848 but his deaqth certificate says 1849. The census is most likely correct, as that is what he told the census worker. (Unless that person wrote it down wrong.) You would think that Albert's death certificate would be correct; however, that information is only as good as the informant giving the information. In this case, it was Albert's second wife. Could she have been wrong?

Charles was the son of Karl (Charles) and Friedericka Bernecker Obenland. He was born in New York City in October, 1871.

He married Agnes Magee on October 25, 1893 in Manhattan County, New York. The marriage certificate is #13716. (Note: There is a marriage for a Joseph Lynn and a Delia Brady that has the same certificate number.)

In several issues of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, Charles is mentioned as being a member of a group called The Silver Star Social Club.

The couple had two children, Agnes, born on May 4, 1894 and Charles A, born two years later.

The 1900 Census lists the family living on Surf Avenue in Brooklyn. Charles was working as an inspector for the railway. (Brooklyn Rapid Transit Company, later the Brooklyn Manhattan Transit.) He worked out of the Culver Depot. The family actually lived at the depot for many years.

This is right in the heart of Coney Island. Imagine growing up there like the Obenland children did! They lived and played right next to the Dreamland Amusement Park, the Iron Tower, the Iron Pier and just down the street from Steeplechase Park and Luna Park, with its amusements and thousands of electric lights.

By 1920, the family had moved to 550 Surf Avenue. According to Google Earth, this is where the New York Aquarium now stands.

Charles was killed while working in Brooklyn on June 19, 1929. An article regarding his death appeared in the evening edition of the Syracuse Herald on June 20, 1929: "Angered because he was prevented from boarding a congested street car with his wife and two children, a powerfully built man struck a blow to the jaw of Charles Obenland, veteran inspector at West Sixth Street and Surf Avenue, Coney Island, which killed him. The assailant and his family escaped in the confusion." Another, more informative article was found in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle. Published on June 20, 1929, that article is included in this memorial. I have yet to find any information as to the identification of his assailant or if he was ever charged or prosecuted.

The Obenland family was living at 1427 E. 4th Street when Charles was killed. This home, still standing, is about 20 blocks from the beach at Coney Island.

Charles was buried on June 22, 1929 in the Evergreens Cemetery. Unfortunately, when it comes to this family, the cemetery records are inaccurate. Charles Louis is not listed on their website, but his wife and son are. They are listed under Obenland. I called the office and the clerk checked the plot book and in that they are all listed under Oberland. I went back and looked for Charles Louis on their website and he isn't listed under Oberland either!

From Wikipedia:

's-Heer Arendskerke is a small village of approximately 1300 inhabitants in the municipality of Goes in the south-western Netherlands.

The settlement consists of two circles of houses around a Protestant church, on a single main road with an obsolete village hall. On the other side of the main road is a little industrial site called Eindewege (end of he road), containing tin huts and small garages. The remainder of the area is given over to fields for agriculture.

There is one primary school and one secondary school. There is also a GP and a nurse / physiotherapist.

The village also has a fire brigade unit with two trucks.

The Rijkswaterstaat maintains a winter depot here, with reserve stocks for dyke repairs.

There was once a railway station before the Second World War, but it was demolished in 1928.

's-Heer Arentskerke was a separate municipality until 1970.[1]

Geraldine was born in Los Angeles in 1915. Her parents were James Lee Huston and Emma Cecilia Bachmann Howe. (The Bachmann was Emma's name at birth; Howe was her last name by adoption.) Geraldine had one brother, James Francis Huston.

Geraldine's father was a traveling salesman and her mother Emma kept house.

Geraldine's brother James was a musician, playing trumpet with pal Phil Harris back in the 1930's in the Los Angeles area. (The Phil Harris who sang "The Bear Necessities" in the cartoon, The Jungle Book.) James, or Jimmie, as his family called him, committed suicide just off CA 1 (Pacific Coast Highway) near the Malibu pier in 1937. Back then it was called Roosevelt Highway.

Geraldine grew up in Southern California. At one time she lived on Beachwood Dr, in Hollywood, near the big "Hollywood" sign. She told her daughter, Cecilia, how they would go to the beach to a fancy place called the Edgewater Club. (Location unknown.)

Geraldine was married to George David Adamson on March 2, 1933 in Los Angeles County, CA. They divorced in 1939 in Los Angeles County, CA (#3180546)

On June, 30, 1940, Geraldine married Harold Edwin Obenland, of Los Angeles, in Yuma, AZ. There were two children from this marriage: Michael Edwin and Cecilia Ann. The couple made their home in Arcadia, CA. Geraldine and Harold's divorce was final on March 3, 1953.

During her lifetime, Geraldine worked as a bacteriologist, bookkeeper, drapery sewer and even a donut maker at Winchell's. Times were tough because both of her children suffered from severe asthma and it was hard for Geraldine to keep a job when she was always having to rush the kids to the emergency room.

At one time, in about 1962, Geraldine was out of money, so she wrote bad checks to feed her family. She was eventually arrested and actually taken to the jail in Arcadia, where she and her children lived. Her daughter can still remember the minute Geraldine decided to do that. They were walking home along Duarte Rd in Arcadia. Michael came to meet them and got upset when his mother said she had no money for food. Geraldine told her daughter, "I know what I have to do." To this day, Cecilia regards her mother as a heroine even though writing bad checks is illegal.

Geraldine always warned her two children about the "green eyed monster", and had lots of sayings that she used often. She would say, "Pride goeth before a fall" and "You can't get blood out of a turnip." She'd say this during hard times...unfortunately, the landlord couldn't get blood out of a turnip, but he sure could kick us to the curb! My favorite saying Geraldine used was, "That's a bunch of hooey!"

Geraldine died in a convalescent hospital in Monrovia, CA after a long bout with cancer. She was only 53. Her ex-husband, Harold paid for the funeral arrangements. During the funeral, he told their daughter, Cecilia that Geraldine was the only woman he had ever loved.

He also has one other granddaughter, Angie Valiant. I don't know who her parents are.

He might be John Wallace Price, born 9 24 1875. WWI Draft registration shows this man with his wife, Jennie L Price, living in Omaha, Douglas County Nebraska. (Sep 1918) Unfortunately, the document doesn't state where he was born. Also, this John was a salesman as was the John who married Emma.
Price, John W (I6587)
He was already married when Katy Frank became pregnant, She didn't know he was already married. Church records indicate there were 2 marriage banns for Thomas and Katy before anyone found out he was already married. 
Bingen, Thomas (I5517)
Her name might actually be Susan Emma, as that is what is on her marriage certificate. However, I'm using it the way it was on her gravestone. 
Bachman, Emma Susan (I4823)
I believe this person is Elizabeth Agatha Allen, daughter of Adelbert Robert Allen and his wife, Lula May Webber. Elizabeth was born on 11 Jul 1904 in Byron, Alfalfa County, Oklahoma. The family ws living in Wichita, Kansas in 1910 and beyond.

According to trees on Ancestry, Elizabeth married a David Raymond Malmborg and later went on to marry Stewart Byron Nye on 30 Sep 1934 in Waukegan, Lake County, Illinois. They lived for a time in Michigan and later Tucson, Arizona before settling in in San Diego County, California.

Elizabeth Allen Nye passed away on 20 Nov 1980 in La Mesa, San Diego County, California. According to her Find A Grave Memorial, number 105327488, her ashes were scattered off Mather Point at the Grand Canyon, Arizona.

Stewart Byron Nye was born 28 jan 1906 in Saint Joseph, Berrien County, Michigan and passed away on 29 Dec 1981 in Salem, Marion County, Oregon. His ashed were also scattered off Mather Point at the Grand Canyon. (F ind a Grave memorial number 105315163)

The only problem with this person being the wife of Charles W Kleinegger is that the only Census they are in while married is the 1925 kansas State Census. This census states that Charles's wife was born in Kansas. When I tried to look at the actual document, the wrong page comes up on Ancestry. Further research is needed.

Louis, his wife and two children are listed twice in the 1920 Census. On 14 or 15 January, 1920, they were listed in Batesville, Ripley County, Indiana. Right after that, they moved to Roswell, Chaves County, New Mexico, because on either 26 or 27 January 1920, they are listed in that city.

On September 26, 1877, Gustave Franklin Obenland was born. He was the son of German immigrants Ernst Gottlieb Obenland and his wife, Mary Agnes Burkhart. Gustave, or Gus, as he was called, was born in Glen Ellen, Sonoma County, California.

Sonoma County is sometimes called the Valley of the Moon, or Valley of the Moons. The Miwok tribe named the area "Valley of the Moon" or "Many Moons" because their legends had it that the moon seemed to rise from the valley or may have rose multiple times in just one night.

Gus had five siblings: Christian G.E, Elizabeth Louise, Adolph Emil, Bertha Rose and Anna Agnes. Their father was a farmer while Mary kept house for the family.

In the fall of 1881, Ernst moved his family to Pomeroy, Garfield Co., Washington Territory. The 1898 Census of Garfield County, Washington lists 20 year old Gustave as working as a laborer. Later, he worked as a clerk in a grocery store.

In 1902, Gus went to Philadelphia where he learned the jeweler trade. During his time there, he completed a large pewter engraving that showcased his engraving skills. This engraving is kind of like a sampler that young girls embroidered during the 1700's and 1800's.

While in Philadelphia, Gus met a young seamstress named Anna Veronica Malarkey. He and Anna were married on August 30, 1904 in Anna's hometown of Girardville, Pennsylvania. They had one child, a son they named Harold Edwin, born on July 3, 1905 in Birmingham, Alabama.

Gus and Anna moved around quite a bit during their marriage. Records show them living in Birmingham, Alabama; Shreveport, Louisiana; Ft. Worth, Texas; Everett, Washington; Goldfield, Nevada and Richmond, California.
At one time, Gus owned a jewlery store in Richmond, at 917 McDonald Ave.

On September 12, 1918, Gus registered for the draft of WWI. His registration says that he was of medium height and build, with blue eyes and red hair.

Gus was an avid fisherman, a sport that seemes to run in the family. His brother Adolph and son Harold were all fishermen. Even his great-grandson Keith, born in 1976, also loves to fish. Gus was even arrested in 1924 in Oakland for having taken too many crabs from the ocean. (see attached article). In the 1920's, Gus was an active member of the Richmond Lodge #13, Knights of Pythias. An article in the Oakland Tribune from September 25, 1921, states that he had been elected Prelate of the lodge. I assume this must mean president.

The actual date of Gustave's divorce from Anna is unknown, but it had to have been between 1920 and 1930. They are listed together in at 413 10th Street in Richmond, California during the 1920 Census. The 1930 census shows Gus, as single and living at 925 Roble Ave. in Menlo Park, a city just southwest of Richmond in San Mateo County, California. In that census, Gus owned the house which had a value of $5,000 at that time. Living with Gus was a Hilda Moore, who was his housekeeper. Whether she actually was his housekeeper at that time is unknown. She might have just been living with him as his "paramour".

They eventually did live as man and wife, and Hilda told people that they were married. Letters and depositions in Gus's granddaughter's possession state that prior to his death, Gus had told his brother Adolph that he and Hilda were NOT married, even though she claimed they were. After Gus's death, Hilda claimed she and Gus were married in a town outside of Tiajuana, Mexico. When pressed, she couldn't remember the name of the town, nor could she produce a wedding certificate or any witnesses to the marriage.

In 1943, Gus moved back to Pomeroy, where he had grown up. Hilda went with him. Gus purchased a large Victorian house at 184 8th Street. The purchase price was $2,000. The deed was made September 1, 1943 and recorded in Garfield County on September 16, 1943. (Volume 42, page 303) Two months later, Gus transfered the house to Hilda, with the deed signed on November 3, 1943. The recording date of this deed is unknown at this time.

On March 14, 1944, Gus passed away. He and Hilda had made the trip to Lewiston, Idaho for some errands. While waiting in his car for Hilda to finish her shopping, Gus died. The cause of death on the death certificate says, "patient dead when I arrived. Evidentally due to coronary thrombosis." Gus's residence listed on his death certificate was 681 4th Street in Pomeroy. He was not living in the house on 8th Street when he died. Gus died without a will. At least, that is what Hilda said!

Only ten days after Gus's death, on March 24, 1944, Hilda signed a deed transferring the house on 8th Street to Gus's cousin Ray Shuck and his wife, Zelda. They purchased the house for only $10. This deed was not recorded until July 25, 1944.

In the terms of Anna's divorce from Gus, she was awarded monthly alimony. Gus's son, Harold, fought for part of his father's estate, as his mother, Anna, was owed about $9,000 in back alimony, which was a lot of money in those days.

An affidavit from a George Bromage stated that his ex-wife Ada Bromage was an old friend of Hilda's. Hilda had enlisted the help of Ada Bromage and Zelda Schuck in Pomeroy to help Hilda remove from Pomeroy the cash and jewelry of Gus's estate. Together, the three women smuggled about $35,000 in cash and jewelry from Pomeroy to Mr. Bromage's house in California, just after Gustave's death. Some of the money went to White Bird, Idaho.

In the end, the court awarded Hilda the estate. There was nothing left to be awarded to Anna, as the court valued the estate at under $3,000. This, of course, did not include the cash and jewelry smuggled out of Washington by Hilda and her accomplices, which comprised the bulk of Gustave's estate.

Gus was buried in the Pomeroy City Cemetery. Hilda left Pomeroy shortly after the estate was settled and moved to San Francisco, California. She died two years later. One wonders if she sold the gold and jewelry smuggled out of Washington and what she did with all of the money? Did she die without spending it all? If so, what happened to it?
