#52 Ancestors - Week #11 - Richard Diedrich Webber

 Richard Diedrich Webber born May 1830 in W├╝rttemberg, Hanover, Hannover, Lower Saxony, Germany. He arrived in the United States in 1858. He married Louisa Kohlmeyer in 1860 in New York City, New York, New York.
In 1870, they lived in New York Ward 9 District 2, New York, New York. They had four children at this time, Annie Webber 9 years old, Richard Webber 7 years old, Frederick Webber 5 years old, Maury (Actually Winny) Webber 2 years old.
 In 1880, they lived in Jersey City, Hudson, New Jersey. There were six children at home during this time, Richard Weber 17, Frederick Weber 15, Wilhiemina Weber 12, Caroline Weber 6, Ernest Weber 3, and Clara Weber 1month old.
In 1890, they lived at 74 Essex, Jersey City, New Jersey.
In 1900, they lived in Jersey City Ward 1, Hudson, New Jersey. There were three children at home during this time, Richard Weber 38, Ernest Weber 22, and George Weber 18.
I have not been able to find when Richard Diedrick Webber died or is buried. It would have to be sometime between 1900 (after June and before June) 1910 as he is not in the 1910 census.

    #52 Ancestors - Week #8 - Nettie Grube Jacobs

    When Henrietta "Nettie" Marguart Grube was born in July 1861 in Kingston, New York, her father, Frederick, was 29 and her mother, Sephia, was 21. She married William Jacobs in 1896. They had two children during their marriage. She died about 1919 in New York, at the age of 57.
    I have found her in all of these Census. She was married in 1896, however, her first son was born in 1894. In the 1875 census she was named as step daughter to Frederick Grube as Nettie Marguart. I can't find her any earlier than that and I haven't been able to find when she died. 
    She was born in Kingston, Ulster, New York, United States in 1861. Lived there in Kingston Ward 07, Ulster, New York, USA in 1875, 1880, 1889, 1892 and moved to Manhattan about 1900. I am trying to find earlier census with her in it and when she died.

    #52 Ancestors - Week #7 - Edith A. Weber

    Edith A. Weber was my great grandaunt who was born on the 19 Dec 1899  in Jersey City, New Jersey to Frederick Herman Weber and Harriet "Kate" Stone(s). At age 1 she lived in Jersey City Ward 10, Hudson County, New Jersey with her parents (Source: 1900 US Census) By 1910 her father Fred has passed away and her mother Kate had remarried to Daniel Miler b.about 1854. Which for a long time was a mystery as to where he went. At age 11 in 1910 she, her siblings and her mother had moved to Jersey City Ward 12, Hudson, New Jersey. where she is listed as a step-daughter on the 1910 Census. (source: 1910 US Census).
     Her siblings were Edgar Charles Weber, William C. Weber, John Albert Weber, and Harry Miller and Evelyn Miller. 

    In 1920 Edith lived with her mom and step-father in Jersey City Ward 6, Hudson, New Jersey.

     After this point I have lost her. I am not sure if she married or passed away.
