My Herbst family arrived in the U.S. abt. 1840 from France and moved to Wisconsin where they started their family.
Andrew Herbst (father) Julia L. Herbst born 1848 in Wisconsin. Mary Othille Herbst born 1850 Wisconsin (my great grandmother). Ellen H. Herbst born 1852. Andrew F. Herbst born 1854. Maria L. Herbst born 1857. Zule H. Herbst born 1860 in Chickasaw County, Iowa.
I have no record of when they moved to Iowa or what happened to the family other than Mary Othille.
