Surnames: Koegler, Denzler, Densler, Hatley, Slater, Fitzgerald
Looking for any information about my grandfather's brothers, sons of Bernard and Wilhelmina (Koegler) Denzler, who came to this country from Germany (Saxony), about 1855, and settled in Brooklyn, N.Y. Some descendants found on Long Island as well as Westchester Cty, N.Y.

EMIL - born 1855 (possibly in Germany). He changed the spelling to "Densler" and was married to Matilda Hatley, born c. 1857.
WILLIAM - born 1857
HARRY - born 1860
RICHARD - born 1862. Spouse possibly Mary Slater. He is believed to have had at least one son, Percy, who died in Bay Shore, L.I. in 1971.
BERNARD - born 1865
GEORGE - born 1868
EDMUND (my gr-father) - born 1871. Married Ellen (Nellie) Fitzgerald. 3 chn. Died in Staten Island, NY in 1950.

Any cousins out there?

Surnames: Densler, Mayer

I have seen very few queries for NY Denslers, so I am hoping your branch connects with mine. My ggrandmother was Mary Densler m. Joseph Mayer abt 1900. She was either from NY or MA, but they resided in NYC (most likely Manhattan) for a while. There were twin sons, born 1894, Louis (Aloysius) and Joseph, and 2 daughers named Lena, but I don't know which children were by that marriage since Mary and perhaps Joseph were married before. Joseph was an immigrant, most likely from Germany. My mother recalls visiting her grandparents in Swansea, MA but does not know if they were the Mayer or Densler grandparents.

As you can see, this side of my family has giant gaps and I have virtually no information to help in my search. Hope you have done better!
