I am seeking information on a Philip Kobler and wife, Mary or Maria.According to census, they were most likely of France and perhaps Alsace-Lorraine.I am having difficulty locating them on pre-1860 census; they should be in Ohio.Mary/Maria was born about 1792 (according to the 1860 US Census in France and other sources as Baden).I am certain that Philip was deceased by 1860.Mary/Maria is shown in the household or her daughter, Madalena (Lena) Kobler Yahn (md. George Yahn), in Washington Co., Wisconsin.By 1870 the Yahns were living in Dodge Co., Minnesota. Madalena (Lena) was born in 1822 in "France."
I suspect that Philip and Mary/Maria Kobler also had a son Henry Kobler who was born about 1810-1811 in "France."He died in Winona, Minnesota.There were probably other children.
