My Grandpa and Grandma Schafbuch (they came from Wisbaden, Germany) came to america in the 1860 to Dubuque, Iowa - where they stayed only a short while, when the heard of land for sale in Iowa county, Iowa for $1,00 on acre. they bought 2 horses and a covered wagon and started on their trip to Marengo, Iowa - on the way my Grandmother had twin boys - one of then (Peter) my__ Dad and your father's Dad. One baby boy child died on the way, and is buried along the road some where between Marengo and Dubuque. They already had Jakob, John, Sophia, Anna and Bertha - there were 6 in all - (Peter) My Dad was the youngest. They settled on the farm ;where (Dorothy) my daughter lives Jakob - also soon was old enough to get married as was John -
Sophia, Anna and Bertha. John & Jakob farmed near Marengo, Sophia married a shoe store man at Victor, Iowa - Bertha married some one from Persia, Iowa I don't remember her or Anna at all - Anna married. Moved where to minnesota but I don't know where. I know she married a Bauer, and the had a number of girls.

Then Frank married Louise Wilknes they had 2 sons - Donald -& Geared[?]. [note-Girard]
Then me - the youngest - married Leo Kelly - we had 3 children - Dic - Dorothy & Patricia who you have talked to.
Now I will go to the Brehm side of the family - my mother and Ed mother

The Brehm side.

After my Grandpa & Grandma Schafbuch came from Germany the wrote back for 2 girls to came and work for the Schafbuch family and the Garing family - who also came from Wilsbaden Germany. They lived only a mile from my Grandparents - So my mother and Aunt Kate Brehm came from Wisbaden Germany in 1862 and Aunt Kate -(my mothers cousin) went to work for Garings and my mother worked for Jakob my Grandfather for room and Board - In 1882 then 1884 mother Margaret was married to Peter Schafbuch and Aunt Kate was married to Jakob Garhing. Now my mothers other family - My Grandfather Jakob - and her three sister came over and found work over here and also were married shortly after they got here/ Aunt Kate married a Hunzelman and Lizzie married a Siebert and and Anna married a Meier.
