Walter Edward Ohlegschlager was the son of Emil Theodore Mathwig and Hatwig Doman. Emil and Hatwig divorced when Walter was very young. Hatwig married second Phillip Ohlegschlager. Phillip raised Walter.
The Ohlegschlagers are not a blood line to me. However, Philip Adam Ohlegschlager adopted my father and was the only grandfather I knew from my father's family. To me the Ohlegschlagers were my aunts, uncles, and cousins.
