Simon Elbert born Jan 1821
I am looking for Simon Elbert's family line. Married to Gertrude Elbert born 1823, lived in Charlotte, livingston, Il. Both are from Bremen Germany. Children: Joseph 1856, John 1862, Simon 1864, Frank 1866, August 1868, Adam 1869, Susan 1877. I am trying to trace his parents and children. I believe Joseph (b. 1856) marries Anna C. Elbert 1855(seen as Emma), lived in Cullom, Livingston, Il. They have many children: Joseph 1884, Anna 1885, Mary 1890, Susie 1895, Louis 1892, Frank 1886, all born in Illinois. Susie is the biological mother of my grandmother Dorothy Elbert Curwick, however Dorothy was raised by Mary in Il. I was told that Susie moved to Nebraska and had several children.
