I am researching Jacob GRUBER and Lena STABLER (or STEVEL) GRUBER, my paternal great-grandparents. Jacob was born in 1835in Germany and came to this country at the age of 10 with his parents, whose names I do not know. Lena (or Alena)was born in 1844 in Pennsylvania and was of German descent,based on her obituary.They married in Sangamon County, Illinois in 1867 and settled in South Fork Township, Christian County, Illinois as - farm laborer. They had seven children, Ida, George, Julia, Jennie, Mary, William and Jacob (Jake). Jacob died in Iuka, Illinois on July 14, 1890 and Lena died in Taylorville, Illinois in January, 1916.I'm interested in anyone who might have information or a link to them or their family.I am especially interested in locating any information about the youngest son Jacob or Jake.
