My great-grandparents were J. Caspar (Zörb) Zoerb (8/17 or 8/23/1830 - 10/17/1884) and Johannetta Bonn (6/11/1836 - 4/23/1896). Both were born in Germany, married 5/10/1856 in Germany and arrived in Minnesota in 1859. They settled in the Maple Grove area.
The children were Karl, John Conrad (married Adeline Sipe), Mary (married Nick Mergen and Robert Krenz), Sophia Elizabeth (married Ferdinand Buelow), Frederich, Alice, Anna (my great-grandmother married Charles Bruhn), Margaret, Minnie, Johann Jacob, Rosina, Lydia, and Edward Benjamin.
Karl and John were born in Germany. The rest of the children were most likely born in Maple Grove. The last five children are listed in the Hennepin County birth records.
I am looking for the following information on:
Alice - born 4/25/1866 - married to ? Maxwell.
Margaret - born 1868.
Minnie - born 2/7/1870 - married to ? LaBelle.
Lydia - born 8/12/1875 - married to H. A. Morse.
Caspar and Johannetta are buried at Immanuel Cemetery in Maple Grove along with Karl, Frederich, Johann, Rosina and Edward. There is also a Jacob Zoerb buried there. He was born in 1837 and died in 1871. Does anyone know how he might be connected to Caspar?
