I'd already been back and added the death into my previous posting, explaining why Emilie had re-married

Emilie's 1938 re-marriage gives HER parents.
Birth Year (Estimated):   1892
Father's Name:   Jacob Ott
Mother's Name:Mary Huber
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:K3GC-SQT

A possible baptism record for Emilie from Germany:
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NZJ2-WB3
(she may have had a namesake older sister (b 1888, d 1889))

There is an immigration record from 1925 : (Emilie + 2 kids)
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:KX9Z-CDD
Gives her last residence as Unter-turkheim? (Untertürkheim is one of the city districts of Stuttgart)

A 1924 arrival   Eugen Guennel (travelling alone) from same city district ( a relative of some sort?)
with Mother named Clara on RobertStrasse 2. (He later rocks up in Texas, wed to Ann)?
Eugen Guennel   Immigration   02 Dec 1924   Stuttgart-Untertuerkheim, Germany   Male   31   Married
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-C9PY-F979-C?i=310&cc=1368704
He (Eugen) might re-arrive in 1926 with Anna in tow.
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:KXML-G3C

There is also Felix's naturalisation record (very obliging of him)!
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QP7T-J6KR
Birth Date: 15 Dec 1886
Birthplace: Kappel Chemnitz Germany
   Kappel is a subdistrict of Chemnitz (Saxony)

If the OP logs in again, perhaps they can at least acknowledge whether we ended up on the right track.

There are entries which look relevant on Ancestry "Hamburg Passenger Lists, 1850-1934" for 1925+/- 1y
for the surname Günnel. cut & paste surname if you can't do the umlaut

https://www.ancestry.com/search/collections/hamburgpl_full/

If the OP needs further help, just shout.
