I just uncovered the name John Reeb in my family research. He married Elizabeth Michel, my gggrandmother in 1855 in St. Clair County, Illinois. Later she married a William Wigert in 1865. I see a lot of Reebs in Belleville in the 1890's and later, but in the 1860 census, I see a John Reeb, 45 living with a Nicholas Reeb, about 21 in Belleville. Where did most of the Reebs live before they moved to Belleville?
So far, we've been able to determine that Elizabeth had at least three daughters; "Lizzie" who married Jacob Stauber, Mary, who married Albert Zepp, and Caroline, who married Herman Hauptmann.
Caroline's daughter lists her mother's name as "Carrie Prichard" on her marriage application. We haven't found any Prichard marriage.
