I have a Bertha Stobbe who married Paul Henery Thaten in 1873 in San Franciso, Ca, USA - Thaten is not a common name and very hard to track - I guess so is Stobbe - I am looking into the Census of that time period and will post anything I find out.
I know most of the Thatens came from Helgoland.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
