|For years, the search for GRUBE ancestors has been difficult and confusing. Recent discoveries has directed the search to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.|
Members of my family have been looking for our GRUBE ancestors for over 20 years. We could only trace our family tree back to Tobias K. Grube (7 May 1828-27 June 1881).Any further information was unknown.In 1995,info surfaced about Tobias' marriage date to Mary Ann TSCHOPP, May 7, 1850 in Liberty Twp, Fairfield Co., Ohio.
At this time, gaps in the Grube family began to fill in at an alarming rate. John Grube(the father of Tobias K.), moved his clan to Fairfield County, Ohio around the 1840's from the Neffsville area in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. John(Jan.5,1800-Jan.9,1862)& Catherine(Apr 13, 1801-July 12, 1889) had seven children Tobias K., Elias K., Adam, Maria K.,Catherine,John Jr., and Henry. Elias K. and Adam married sisters, Mary A. and Ester Ault. While Maria and Catherine grube married brothers named Albright. Many of these grube ancestors are buried in the Old Basil Cemetery in Baltimore, Fairfield Co., Ohio.
Christian Grube and Catherine Elizabeth KAMERER (John's parents) lived and raised their fourteen children in Neffsville, Lancaster Co., Pennsylvania. They were married May 10. 1784 at the First Reformed Church in Lancaster. Their children are all listed in the following reports.
