Have you contacted a Rachel Keller that has information for a Herman Carl Garbe, died 1894 in Minnesota?
Do you have any connection to my great granfather Karl GARBE born 19 Feb 1862 in Jonnivitz, East Germany, and died 8 Feb 1923 in Newburg, Bottineau, North Dakota, USA. He married Alvina Caroline BRUST born 13 Aug 1891 in Dresbach, Winona, Minnesota, daughter of Frederick BRUST. Alvina's grandfather was a DIETRICH. Alvina and Karl owned a Hotel/Restaurant in Newburg, North Dakota.
Karl Garbe's mother was Emilia ROSCENE b. 13 Mar 1844 in Pletsig, Germany, died 27 Aug 1935 in Eugene, Eugene, Oregon, daughter of August ROSCENE (no dates or locations).
I have nothing about the Garbe's in Canada.
I once saw a document noted online that referenced the Garbe surname but never saw the document. It was in the holdings of a San Diego Genealogy Society if I recall.
I have not read the Garbe Family History book by Judith Wersted Kelley - 1995 to see if Karl is listed.
