Hello Isabel, Are your Kober relatives/ancestors from Iowa? My great greatgrandmother was Christina Catherine Kober. She was born in Germany in 1834 and came to America in the 1850's. She married John Henry Yungclas in Birdgeport Connecticut and later removed to Traer, Tama County, Iowa.She had several brothers and sisters. Two of the brothers were John and George. George married Elizabeth Granger and they had six or seven children before George died. Elizabeth then married John Kober and they had six or seven children, some of their descendants still live in Traer, Iowa. I don't know if this is the same family you're researching and I don't have a great deal more information other than the Granger book but will be happy to share what I have.
