Martin Joseph Schickel was the older brother of my father Arthur Schickel, of Louisville, Kentucky. His parents were Katherine "Katie" Schehr Schickel Koch, and Lawrence Schickel, both of Germany. Martin married Vyvian Sturgeon in 1914. Vyvian and the children later left Kentucky, but Martin remained working as a lather and plasterer. In later life Martin lived in the home of his sister Rose Schickel Hoefler. He is buried in Cave Hill Cemetery. The grave is unmarked.
