Marriage of Annette Kuebeler and William Dehnel

On September 18, 1894, the only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. August Kuebeler, Annette, married William Dehnel, the son of Sandusky jeweler Henry Dehnel.

An undated Sandusky Register article on file in the biographical files of the Sandusky Library Archives Research Center, reported that the couple was married at the Tiffin Avenue home of Mr. and Mrs. August Kuebeler. August Kuebeler and his brother Jacob Kuebeler were associated with the Kuebeler Brewing and Malting Company. The Kuebeler brewery was one of the largest businesses in the city, and later became part of the Cleveland and Sandusky Brewing Company.

August and Jacob Kuebeler built identical homes on Tiffin Avenue. (You can see one of the homes in the image above.) The August Kuebeler home, now privately owned, still stands at 1319 Tiffin Avenue.

The wedding was officiated by the Rev. A. H. Dornbirer. The ceremony took place “in the presence of the immediate families of the high contracting parties.” After the ceremony, the newlyweds took a trip to New York City and Niagara Falls. The article about the Kuebeler-Dehnel marriage concluded with, “Mr. William A. Dehnel is a highly respected young business man, and his bride is a young lady whose excellent personal qualities have endeared her to a host of friends, all of whom will extend hearty wishes for the future welfare of the newly married couple.

William A. Dehnel passed away at his home at 1319 Tiffin Avenue on November 22, 1931. His funeral was held at his home on November 24, 1931, and burial was at Oakland Cemetery.  Mrs. Annette Dehnel died on June 19, 1952, and she was buried in Oakland Cemetery. At the time of her death in 1952, Mrs. Annette Kuebeler Dehnel had been residing with her daughter Lucile Dehnel Burch.
