According to my notes, ARTHUR BERNARD TAUBER SR. was b. in Decatur, Illinois, 8 March 1899, the second child of EMANUEL [known as "Emil"] TAUBER and his wife, ANNA (STEPHEN) TAUBER.
Emanuel Tauber and Anna Stephen were married in Macon Co., Illinois, 10 June 1896, and had the following known children:
1.WILLIAM TAUBER, b. Decatur, 16 Apr. 1897; d. Belleville, IL, October 1985.
2.ARTHUR BERNARD TAUBER, b. Decatur, 8 March 1899; d. Eldwin, Macon Co., IL, January 1977.
3.ROBERT TAUBER, b. Decatur, 5 June 1901; d. Decatur, November 1972.
4.HERBERT J. TAUBER, b. Decatur, 1905; d. Decatur, 16 October 1938.
5.OSCAR TAUBER, b. Decatur, 23 May 1908; d. in Ames, Story Co., Iowa, November 1982.
According to both the 1900 and 1920 censuses, both Emanuel Tauber and his wife, Anna (Stephen) Tauber, were natives of Germany /"Schlesia".Emanuel Tauber was born there in August 1865 and died in Decatur, Illinois, 25 September 1946, age 81.His wife was born in Schlesia in December 1872, but I don't know her deathdate.
There was another Tauber family that lived in Decatur, and I think the father in this family was likely Emanuel's brother:GUSTAV A. /known as "Augustus" / TAUBER, b. in "Prussia", 1869.Gustav was married in Macon Co., Illinois, 22 February 1893, to AUGUSTA A. BABEL, b. Prussia, 1872.She died in Decatur, 31 Oct. 1927, age 55, and Gustav died there on 26 October 1942, age 73.They had five known children:
1.HENRY TAUBER, b. Decatur, 1894.
2.MARTIN TAUBER, b. Decatur, 1897.
3.LYDIA TAUBER, b. Decatur, 1901.
4.ESTHER TAUBER, b. Decatur, 1906.
5.ANNA TAUBER, b. Decatur, 1908.
I do not know who the father of Emanuel Tauber [and brother?, Gustav] was.I also don't know how this family connects to my Tauber family, who originated in the Czech Republic.
Hope this helps you...
