#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.
