Looking for information on my gggrandparents, Adolph KOCH and his wife Barbara.Don't have a lot to go on.Adolph appears in the 1870 Pike County census index as age 31, born Prussia, lives Pittsfield.This goes along with the supposed birthplace of his daughter, Emma Wilhelmina Koch.Her obituary states she was born in (or near) Pittsfield, Illinois on March 4, 1868. Adolph had several other children, I have names, spouse names, some of their children, but no dates!
Adolph Koch served in the Civil War in the 33rd and 99th Illinois regiments.The family eventually moved to Cedar County, Nebraska, settling there before 1895, which is when Emma was married to Andrew Schwarzenbach on her parents' farm.I do not know if Adolph lived anywhere between these two locations.
Adolph died in 1924.I do not know where, probably Nebraska,.Haven't located where he is buried, either.
Any help with this brick wall of agggrandfather would be greatly appreciated!
