Research questions:
I need to verify the death of John Eberhardt Weber so I can get a copy of his Death Cert. He is our immigrant ancestor and we are trying to get his port of entry to the U.S., his port of departure from Germany, and his parents' names so we can move from there.

Descendants of John Eberhardt Weber, Sr. [Immigrant ancestor]
Generation No. 1

1.  JOHN EBERHARDT1 WEBER, SR. was born February 06, 1841 in Wurtemburg? [southeast Germany], and died October 05, 1913 in Rising City, Butler Co, NE - Son's home, Charles Weber.  He married WILHELMENIA DALLEGGE September 13, 1868 in Muscatine Co, IA, daughter of FREDRICK DALLEGGE and MINNIE HYPHER.

Notes for JOHN EBERHARDT WEBER, SR.:
Died in his son's home (Charles Weber) [see later note]
Have a document (Oath of Allegiance?) in the name of "John E. Weaver" August 1875 in Muscatine County, Iowa of citizenship. Document states John E. Weaver has lived in the US for 5 years and on Sept 4, 1875 was given citizenship. Says he was a citizen of "Wurtemberg". I'm assuming that was Germany.  It also states at the bottom of the paper that John Weaver's name was legally changed to John Weber.

No Webers were found in the 1860 Census Index for Muscatine Co, IA .

From; Iowa 1870 Index Vol. 2 - 'Census 977.7 x22ij 1870 v.2' from Mesa LDS, film # 0545912

No Webers were found, but I did find:
Wever, Frederick Muscatine 171 Moscow Twp
Wever, John        Muscatine 171 Moscow Twp

On Page 171 of 1870 census (pg 6) for Moscow Township Muscatine Co taken 9th of June 1870 I found the following:

Line 11
39-39
Wever, John, 29, M W, Farmer (value Personal estate) 200
Born: Wirtemberg
Both parents indicated as being of foreign birth
Column 19 & 20 were marked with a "1" - (I think those columns referred to
over 26 & being naturalized.)

Line 12
Wilhelmina, 18, F, W, Keeping house
Born: Prussia
Both parents indicated as being of foreign birth

Line 13
Anna, 1, F,W
Born: Iowa
Both parents indicates as being of foreign birth

Line 14
Frederick, 25, M, W, Farm laborer
Born: Wirtemberg
Col 20 marked with = 1, which would indicated that he also was naturalized.

**Now my question is what relation to John is this "Frederick Wever"? Brother? Did they come across at the same time?**

In the 1880 Census - Muscatine Co, IA, Goshen Township Mesa LDS Film
#1254358, (taken 10th June, 1880) I found the following:

Line 21 79/80
Weber (?) John MW 40 Married Farmer    Swenderb (?)

Line 22
Wannie (?) WF 29 Wife Married Keeping House Prussia, Prussia, Prussia

Line 23
Annie    WF 12 Daug At school Iowa

Line 24
Catherine WF 9 Daug Iowa

Line 25
Mathilda WF 7 Daug Iowa

Line 26
George WM 5 Son Iowa

Line 27
William WM 3 Son Iowa

Line 28
Elizabeth WF 7/12 Oct Daug Iowa

I then checked Butler Co, NE for the years 1900 (LDS film #1240918) and
1910 (LDS film #1374852) and found the following information.

Now I'm not sure if this is our "John Weber" as it appears he has remarried and I have no current information on this happening.  However, I suspect this is our John with his new wife, Anna, and her two children from a previous marriage as Herman Louis would have been his last child with Wilhelmina who died in 1895.  I don't see "Annie or Maggie" as his children, but "Eddie" is definitely a possibility.

1910 Census Butler Co, NE, David City, TWP - I find no "John Weber"...where did he go by 1910? He dies in Oct 1913 in Rising City, in the home of his son, Charles Weber (Karl Herman Weber?). Maybe that's where he is in 1910 in Rising City and not David City. I will have to check that next.

I then checked "Germans to America Vol 15 - June 1863 - October 1864" and found the following Webers that fit my criteria:

**Butler Co, NE was created in 1856 from Greene Co, NE.**

According to Grandma's notes:
"Don't know John E's brothers or sisters. Father married 3 times, Mother 1 or 2 marriage."

From email 2-5-2002 (Mary Matheson) the following information was obtained:
"Debbie, this is per Rosie who probably got it from Marcy or Jenny. Grandpa John Weber died of Asthma. His son, Edward, Frank, and Adam died of Diphtheria. She says, he was at the State Farm near David City when he died.
I have always thought he died at his son's home. Mary"

Frederick Dallegge & Eva (w2)

IA> Butler Co. NE

Wilhelmenia (Minnie) Dallegge married John E. Weber. Minnie's father, Frederick, was in Butler Co and is buried there as well, with a second wife, Eva, & more children from this marriage. My understanding from family members is that the Webers were Lutheran until the marriage of my g-grandfather, Charles (Karl) Herman Weber to his wife, Aloysia (Louisa) Theresa Schaf. The Schafs were Catholics from my understanding. The Schlesingers would be related to the Schafs as Aloysia's mother was, Theresa Schlesinger.

Schaf & Schlesinger

see above paragraph

Stoners & Cortners

The Stoners & Cortners would be in Otoe Co. NE as far as I know right now.
