PAETH looking for anyone with this surname anywhere, anytime! Have info on three different families - especially the ones of Henry Wilhelm of Monroe Co., WI and his brother, Ferdinand of Henry Twp., Brown Co., SD.
PASCH (Gustov & Ferdinand) who were residents in the Groton & James areas from 1880.
SOMBKE family of Verdon/Garden Prarie Twp.
LIER (August & Paul) came from Brandenburg, Prussia in 1881, and were residents of Riverside Twp. & Aberdeen.
To the best of my knowledge, all of the families (except Lier) were from Kreis Stolp, Pommern, Prussia, arriving in Wisconsin in the late 1870s before moving to Brown County in the early 1880s.
Sons of Anton & Barbara (ALDER/ADLER) GABRIEL came to Aberdeen area c. 1887/8 where my grandfather Nicholas Anton was born 22 Jun 1888, son of Michael & Marie (LUTZ) GABRIEL. They moved on to TX and thence to KS.
Anton & Barbara's children: Ann Marie, Anton, Lorenz (Lawrence), Martin, Joe, Frank, John, Michael.
Any information most welcome!
