Christof was born in October 1864, to Christoph(Krystof) Henkel and Christine Holtz Christof Henkel. The Church where his birth was confirmed was located in Dylazki, Poland. See entry below REG#285 Written in Polish, but am currently in the processes of having translated.

Birth Record [1]

Christoph Married Justine Werner in 1887 [2]

Many of Christoph's brother's and Sisters immigrated to Canada but Christoph remained behind. His wife Justine passed away in about 1919, after which time Christoph re-married. At this time I have no knowledge of this wife's name or the name of their children but we have found a picture of Christoph with a wife and children that do not appear to be relatives we have named already.

Christoph and Justine suffered with the loss of children and I have been able to find records relating to the deaths of 2 quite young. One at the age of 3 and one other at a very similar age.

Christoph passed away in about 1946, and I have pictures of his funeral provided to me by some various family members which attended back then. [1]
