Re: Herbig in Indiana / Kentucky
Another Herbig heard from. My 2X great grandfather Carl Herbig came to Syracuse NY from Dirschau, Prussia which is now Tzcew, Poland (since WWII) in about 1882. He brought his wife Marie Galuzka and their 6 children; Mary, who became (Franciscan)Sister Alberta; Helena, who married Fred Scharoun; Frances, who became (Franciscan) Sister Clotilda; Georg Adalbert, who married Glenna and had one son, George Howard Herbig, an astronomer who lives in Hawaii; Charles, who lived in Long Beach CA; and Frank, who married Ella Kennedy and had 4 sons, Francis John, Lawrence E., Charles B. and Paul. Francis John (1899-1973) was my grandfather.
Carl and all his sons were tailors. These families spread out considerably from Syracuse, and some stayed nearby. At least 3 of their descendents (including myself) are researching the family history. For further details I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
