Henry and Anna Libbert
I need help in locating Henry and Anna Libbert (Lubbert, Luebert, Libert, etc).
Last location of the two together was in the 1860 census for Osage County, Jackson Township, Missouri, with daughter Elizabeth, born that year.
Next finding is 1880 Jim Henry TWP in Miller County. Henry alone with children Elizabeth, Arnold, and John, with a boarder named Casper Morph living in the household.
John was the youngest, born in 1868, prompting me to believe Anna died sometime shortley after.
In 1870, a son Casper is found living with a Kroll in Osage TWP in Cole County.
There was also a son named Henry, who was my g grandfather.
In 1880, there is a 16 year old Henry living with a Lueckenotto family in Jackson TWP in Osage County, and the same year there is a 17 year old Henry living with another family. Either of these two Henrys could be my Henry.
Altogether, My Libbert family consisted of Henry and Anna, with children Elizabeth, Casper, Henry Phillip, Arnold, and John. Elizabeth married into a Lueckenhoff family, Casper married into the Stumpe(?) family, Henry Phillip married Mary Elizabeth Bond, Arnold never married, and John disappeared after 1880.
I have a good handle on who is who after 1880, but I need help with names between 1860 and 1880, who to confirm, or who to eliminate, and where was Henry, or Henry and anna, in 1870.
I have found burial sites for Henry and some of the children, but nothing for Anna. There are Anna Libberts in some of the cemetery sites, but they don't match the dates for my Anna, who was born in 1833 in Bavaria, and died probably 1871 in Osage, Cole, or Miller County, Missouri.
I'm not exactly at a brickwall with this, I just need to know what happened to break up the family after all the children were born in the 1860s, and where is Anna buried.
BTW divorce is out of the question, this was a very staunch Catholic family, and lived in a very strong German community, as anyone descended from German stock can testify.
Thanks in advance for any help you may have to offer. There were many "Libberts" in those counties at that time, and they can be very hard to sort out at times. Dave -B
