Researching ABERLE surname in Belleville, St. Clair Co., IL. Origin of this family is Gosbach, Geislingen, Wuerttemberg, GER.
My mother's line- Franz Anton (later called Frank) ABERLE, came to the US from Wuerttemberg about 1850. He married in 1860 in Illinois to Emelie DINNOMEYER(and various spellings), also an immigrant, from Alsace Lorraine, FRA.
Frank's father, Franz Anton ABERLE, was an innkeeper in Gosbach, who married Monika WAGNER. After father Franz's death, Monika married his cousin Johann Evangelist ABERLE. They had a large brood of children, many dying in infancy. Brothers and step-brothers who also settled in Illinois were- Constantin, Markus, Johannes, and Joseph Aberle. Is anyone else researching this line? I have church records on this line to about 1700's.
