His father was Jacob Adam Langwasser, b c 1862, Relsberg, Bavaria. I am researching his birth/baptism and parentage on another site. My interest here is in the Devon connection.
Jacob married Sarah Anne Raymond in Newton Abbot on 10 May 1885. He gave his occupation as musician. Their children were Katherina, born Torquay 1885. Married (1) Mugford (2) Hooper. Herman Charles, born 1893, Newton Abbot. Assumed mother's maiden name (Raymond) and Leo.
1891. Living Bayards Cove Hill, Dartmouth. 1901 Quay Road, Woolborough, Newton Abbot. 1911 Warberry Vale, Torquay. The Torbay Householders' Register, 1911-12 shows Mrs Langwasser at 9 Warberry Vale. CWGC record of Leo's next of kin show parents living at Skews Cottages, Station Road, Cullompton.
I have traced the registration of deaths of all five members of the family but am looking for any additional information relating to their lives in Devon. At about the same time there was a Jacob Langwasser and family living in the Bideford area. Although almost certainly related, they are of no interest to me at this time.
