Wilhelm Carl Schaefer was my Grandma’s only brother.  He and his father, Christof Wilhelm were both wonderful sculptors, with works all over Germany. Wilhelm Carl married Marie Hechtel.

He died 28 January 1951 of Black Lung Disease, or TB from stone dust in his lungs at age 66. His father died of the same at age 53.
