May 1, 1875, Rev. Mr. Sifferd secured an efficient helpmate, one who has since been of great assistance to him in his work as he was then united in marriage with Mary R. Henkel, daughter of Rev. D. M. Henkel, D. D. This estimable lady was born in Goshen, Ind., received an excellent education at Bethlehem, Pa., and at the time of her marriage was teacher in a seminary at Mt. Pleasant, N. C. The family of which she is a member has long been represented in America, its first representatives in the country having settled at New Market, Va. Her grandfather, Rev. Charles Henkel, and his brother, Andrew, were the first members of the family who came to Ohio. Both were ministers, and their names are inseparably associated with the early history of the Lutheran Church in Licking County.
