Re: Kobe, Karl
Looking for the additional information for the following;
I have a typed Obituary for Karl Kobe -
Deceased had always been a robust man, suffering very little from illness,until kidney trouble set in.He was born in Germany, a son of Mr. and Mrs. William Henry Koby & Maria Koby (Kobe), and came to Hanover, Ont. as a young man of Twenty-four years. (which means he moved here to Hanover in 1872) Additional information, he was born on July 9, 1948 and Died on May 5, 1932.
Kobe, Ernest (Karl Kobe brother)
b. May 24, 1844 - Germany
d. March 18, 1920 @ Hanover Ont.
Kobe, Valentine(not sure of what relation)
d.: January 20, 1902
Age: 60 years old (I assume born 1842)
Dated January 30, 1902
Kobe, Sophia (nee Kehn/Koehn) (my g-grandmother)
b. Hannover, Germany
November 15, 1850
d. September 6, 1927
Dated September 8, 1927
Family rumor has it that Karl & Sophia knew each other in Germany and that is the reason they came to Canada - to start a new life.Because of this, I am assuming that they came from the same area, Mecklenburg, or Hannover.
Subsequent to this I found the marriage information for both Karl & Sophia
which gives me their parents names but no location.My g-grandmother Sophia Kehn or Koehn came to Canada around 1870 and married
my grandfather Karl Kobe Nov 12, 1872.She came with her brother (Christopher) and possibly sister (yet to confirm)
Any assistance you could provide would be helpful.Sophia died in Canada.I also think that the parents died in Germany.
this is the most interesting of all - The marriage of Charles Koby, 24, resident of
Brant Township. Bruce Co. born-Germany, bachelor, laborer, Evangelical Association, son of William Henry Koby & Maria Koby, married Sophia Koehn, 22, resident of Brant Township. Bruce Co b-Germany, spinster, Evangelical Association, daughter of Christopher Koehn & Fridricke Koehn.Witnesses Fred Schultz & Christian Koehn, Brant.Date of Marriage November 12, 1872

Any info you can provide me would be helpful.
