Their son Julius Barthel was born in Kristiania in 1868, and in 1881 had the son Rudolf Berny Barthel. Rudolf married Elvira Hoffmann from Sweden, and started Circus Berny in 1929. The WWII stopped the work with the circus, and Rudolf died 7 february 1944. Their daughter Liv married Ivar Løken, and they had the children Vivi, Rune og Ole Christian Löken.
