Hello John, I'll be visiting Cedar Co., Iowa this summer.I live near Joliet, IL, so I can get to Tipton and back in one day.I'll try to get a fix on the Kalb family.I'm pretty sure the Cedar Co. Kalb's are all descendants of George and Dorcas (Culp) Kalb. One bit of info I found on the internet was a marriage: John Kalb m. Nellie A. Fourde.No date given, just the marriage book no. and page.Here is some census data:
