    Notes 
    • Emma (Fausak) Jesswein remembered Wanda Nickel visiting in Michigan with her children. Emma was born in 1922, so that visit must have occurred at the earliest in the late 1920's when Wanda would have been in her early 30's.

      At the time of her marriage in 1915 at the age of 21 to Edward Nickel, she was living at 71 Sussex Street, Jersey City NJ (same address as Edward Nickel, and also where Gustav Fausak, Richard Fulton Lincoln, Matilda Fausak, and Lydia Caroline Fausak lived).

      Witnesses at the marriage were Adolf Lenze, Lydia Fausak, Gustav Fausak, and Pauline Pletz.

    Fausak, Gottlieb; 1911; re-entry record
    Gottlieb returned to the US with his younger sister Wanda; his wife Hulda is shown as living in Błędowo. Both Gottlieb and Hulda returned to Poland sometime after their 1904 marriage in Jersey City NJ. At least two other people are of interest in this record. One (#15) is Ottilie Renspitz (possibly Rennspies) of Obrenki Poland, and the other (#17) is Natalie Pletz of Błędowo; both surnames are associated with the Fausak family and they may be related to Gottlieb and Wanda.

    Wanda would have been 14 years old at this time, and is the oldest known "German girl" in the family in America at that time. She did have younger sisters Lydia (*1898), Ottlie (*1900), and Mathilda (*~1901) at the time of this ad.
