Jerry, The only info I have about our Kleber origins is: Anthony John Kleber was born in Luxemburg, came to the U.S.A. in 1855. at the age of 25 yrs.He was a Naturalized citizen and a Painter by trade. He married Mary Leyers in Chicago, IL. July, 1858. Six years later they moved to Carlyle, IL. and resided there for the rest of their lives.
John Leyers and Susanna (Speess) sp.? were the parents of Mary & John Jr. and according to John's Jan 29,1910 obituary there was another brother who stayed in Germany. Shirley
